To choose the best homeopathy course, you should consider your professional goals and your interest in homeopathy and investigate the accreditation and reputation of several schools. If you plan to practice homeopathy professionally, you must determine the legality of such a practice and the licensing requirements where you live. You should also find out the requirements of any homeopathy certification organizations with which you may be interested in affiliating.
Before embarking on a homeopathy course, it's a good idea to find out whether completing such a course is going to satisfy your reasons for studying homeopathy. If you are simply interested in learning about homeopathy, contact homeopathy schools and find out if they have an introductory homeopathy course for laypeople. Taking such a course rather than a course designed for professionals can save you a lot of time and money. On the other hand, if you are interested in a career in homeopathy, it is important to select a homeopathy course or courses that will enable you practice. There are several independent homeopathy schools as well as schools that specialize in teaching holistic or naturopathic health care that frequently include homeopathy classes in their curriculum.
As homeopathy is a form of alternative or holistic healing, it is not commonly taught in mainstream medical schools or schools of health science. If you are already a medical professional, you will likely have to seek homeopathy training and a specialized homeopathy school. If you already have licensure, you may wish to pursue homeopathy certification. A homeopathy certification board may exist in the country where you live, so you should contact it to learn which homeopathy classes you need to take for certification. You should also ask for a list of approved homeopathy schools.
If you are not a licensed health care professional, learn about the laws in your area regarding the practice of homeopathy. You may live in a place where the only people who can practice homeopathy are licensed health care providers. If this is the case, taking a homeopathy course may not enable you to meet your professional goals. You may need to complete education in a health profession in addition to receiving homeopathy training. On the other hand, you may be able to practice under the supervision of a homeopathy doctor. It is important to keep in mind that simply taking a course will not actually license you to practice homeopathy, even if you are able to be certified by a professional organization.
