American College of Healthcare Sciences’ Aromatherapy Programs Approved by Alliance of International Aromatherapists


American College of Healthcare Sciences’ professional aromatherapy training approved by Alliance of International Aromatherapists (AIA) for Level II and Level III Clinical Aromatherapy Training

Portland, OR, April 27, 2011 --(PR.com)-- American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) is proud to announce the Alliance of International Aromatherapists (AIA) has approved the ACHS Certificate in Aromatherapy as a Level II approved aromatherapy program and the ACHS Diploma in Aromatherapy as a Level III Clinical Aromatherapy program.

ACHS is the only nationally accredited, AIA Level II and III professional clinical aromatherapy training available in the U.S. This recognition ensures ACHS aromatherapy programs and ACHS students meet and exceed AIA’s extensive curriculum requirements for aromatherapy training at the clinical level as critically reviewed by independent evaluators of the AIA Education Committee.

The mission of the AIA Education Committee is to “foster high standards of safe, ethical and professional practice in the clinical use of essential oils.” To that end, “AIA promotes essential oil research and has established guidelines that promote excellence in aromatherapy education” to ensure “competency of practitioners of clinical aromatherapy.” The ACHS Certificate in Aromatherapy and ACHS Diploma in Aromatherapy have been recognized as Level II and Level III programs respectively as a reflection of the College’s commitment to curricula that utilizes the most current research in aromatherapy available, as well as the highest standards of professional training, standards of practice, and professional ethics.

“We’re very proud of this recognition,” says ACHS President Dorene Petersen. “AIA is diligently working to establish a high standard of excellence in the aromatherapy industry, which begins with quality education. Our mission at ACHS is to provide leadership in holistic health education through comprehensive professional online and on-campus education. This AIA recognition supports our mission and validates what we feel on a personal level, that our students are on the cutting-edge of aromatherapy education. We have the great privilege of training responsible, influential members of the growing aromatherapy professional community.”
