The purposes of the CHC certification are to advance the homeopathic profession by certifying individuals who meet and maintain a recognized standard of professional and ethical competence in classical homeopathy and to assist the general public in choosing appropriately qualified homeopaths.
The CHC Exam is a valid and reliable measure of an individual’s knowledge and skill in classical homeopathy required for an entry-level certified practitioner of homeopathy. The CHC is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and is the only accredited certification organization in homeopathy. Individuals who have met the CHC Homeopathic Educational Requirements are eligible to take the exam.
