Package 1 – Aromatherapy Practitioner Course: $999.00

With this option, you will have the course material for 200 hours worth of course work. You work at your own pace and send assignments in as you complete them. This is a full course that will give you the basis you need to sit for the ARC exam and become a Registered Aromatherapist.  You will have:

  • Course Binder:
    • over 500 pages of course-specific information.
    • product formulations, many tables, charts, references, and sufficient resources to enable the student to begin successfully and, more importantly, safely exploring the world of essential oils and aromatherapy.
    • a chapter summary and practice questions are included at the end of each section. A one-hundred question exam must be completed, and ten short essays are to be returned to the Institute for grading and to earn a diploma.
  • 31 sample vials of essential oils and materials to complete the worksheets

Aromatherapy Practitioner Course info:

The majority of course material is based on current scientific research, and is very highly referenced throughout. Current theories in aromatherapy teaching are also explored.

A Certificate Diploma from The Atlantic Institute of Aromatherapy listing all subjects covered and the 200 hours of study will be presented upon successful completion of the write-in exam, essays, and/or case studies and research paper. In this respect, “certification” refers to “meeting the educational requirements to complete a course of study” and in no way implies license to diagnose, prescribe, or treat. Students will NOT be ‘licensed’ to do anything, as aromatherapy is not licensed yet in any state or on a national level. In other words, students can practice aromatherapy under current licenses (i.e., massage, esthetic, medical, etc.) according to individual state laws. In addition, students will have adequate training to add aromatherapy treatments in a safe and efficacious manner.

This course with Practitioner Module (100 hours) exceeds the suggested educational guidelines of the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapists. Therapists and students will qualify to sit for the upcoming Aromatherapy Registry Council national exam and become a Registered Aromatherapist.

    I love this course! I also love that it is self paced so that I can go as fast, or as slow, as life will allow. The student group is awesome, and it is really nice to be able to pick everyone’s brain. I also love the fact that the course comes with an actual binder that I can put my hands on and add to, highlight, and note as I need to. Also, there is a massive amount of info included with it, and it is presented in a way that it directs you to so much more. The practitioner reference manual is a must, and a cannot live without for me. The only reason I got the package without it, is because I had already purchased it to have before I was ready to get the course.

    I had been self studying for over 2.5 years before I finally enrolled in a course, but I had decided a good while before doing so, that Sylla and the Atlantic Institute of Aromatherapy was the choice for me. I love Sylla’s energy and spunk, and how she cares for her students. I also appreciate her honesty as I need someone who is willing to tackle everything, not just a narrow or preferred, point of view. I cannot even begin to express how much I have learned from her, and from several of her students, up to this point. Sylla, Nyssa, and the student group have so much to share. I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn from people that have the passion, experience, and no-nonsense approach that they do. I can truly say that I feel at home at AIA and that Sylla, Nyssa, and many of the others, feel like so much more than just teachers and mentors.
