Frequently Asked Questions


I already have extensive knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology, can I test out of this?

There is no need to “Test Out” nor for you to repeat something you have already had training. With that said, if you feel confident in the topic, then yes you may skip that module. Do keep in mind, at the end, ALL material is covered in the final exam. Further, we suggest you be open minded to even ‘familiar’ topics as they may be presented in a new way or bring a deeper understanding via one of our
20+ professional lecturers.

How long do I get access to the course?

Unlimited access FOREVER to all recording training and documents.

12 month access to Live Sessions… once you have completed 12 months you will have option to continue with Live Sessions through our Practitioner Membership Program.

What is a SASS Case Study?
It is included in all of our Practitioner Level courses- CFN, CISP and CAHP. We meet via ZOOM- a link is emailed out before the call; 1- 2 x per month. During these S.A.S.S.- Structured and Strategized Solutions-Coaching calls, we cultivate Critical Thinking processes. You bring your Client Cases and we as a group, led by a Practitioner, discuss how to “find the underlying cause of imbalance” and integrated options to support the client in bringing balance to their health. An EPIC Bonus to assist You, in your Success! P.S.: The SASS Calls are available to You Forever!...after you graduate,..after you open your practice, ‘before’ & after you are (no longer!) struggling with that ‘tough’ Client Case!

Is there a Formal Graduation ceremony if this is all online?

We have an ONLINE Exam/Graduation every Spring- FEB/MAR. Then, in the Fall, SEPT/OCT, we have a LIVE Exam/Graduation. The location varies throughout the U.S., & we post this for all who are near to completing or are contemplating their final exam. We also partner our Fall S.E.E. - Soul Expansion Event- following the Graduation. This allows you to “work on you”. The Inner Work makes the Outer Work SHINE….. We can’t wait to SEE You at S.E.E.!

Do I need to be Board Certified in order to get a Diploma of Completion / Certified for the CAHP designation?

NO -The Board Certification from the SCAHP (Society of Complementary and Alternative Health Practitioners) is just an added level of certification...acquired after completing a 4-hour NO notes exam. Well maybe not “just” but it does lend a level of competency once completed. Once you have completed the CAHP FINAL EXAM, you will be awarded your EARNED Testament of Completion Certificate and hold the credentials to offer your gifts to the world as a Complementary and Alternative Health Practitioner (CAHP).

How long does CAHP take to complete?

The CAHP designation takes anywhere from 12 - 24 months to complete thoroughly. If you have some prior level of Anatomy & Physiology knowledge or have worked in the Natural Health field the comprehension of the modules will go faster. Keep in mind, it TRULY depends
on the time you are devoting to view the material and then COMPLETE the Clinical Application of the material. On average, time spent of 5-7 hours per week = 12 months projected completion.

How is the CAHP program divided?

We have 3 MAIN sections:

1) The EPIC Foundation (40 credit hours*). Your First Benchmark Certification - CNHP- Complete and Pass the ONLINE exam and you will earn a Certified Natural Health Professional Designation/Certification.

2) Symptoms AND their solutions (146 credit hours*). There is an ONLINE benchmark exam to ensure your comprehension of the material trained. However, there is No additional Certification obtained at this benchmark.

3) Tools N Techniques (237 credit hours*). There is an ONLINE benchmark exam to ensure your comprehension of the material trained. However, there is No additional Certification obtained at this benchmark.

Within EACH of the sections we have charts, research reports, guided clinical application of tools n techniques, Symptom Solutions templates and much more. Of course, don’t forget the Clinical Application hours, Forum hours, SASS calls, Coaching hours and exceedingly EPIC support to make this The Most Comprehensive Integrated Program you will find!
