Online Classes at Portland Community College
Online classes to obtain accreditation in nutritional therapy and herbalism are being offered at the Portland Community College (PCC) Institute for Health Professionals. Taught by KP Khalsa, president of the American Herbalists Guild (AHG), registration begins on March 4 for the term starting March 30. As in previous years, the class offering may also be attended at the PCC CLIMB Center for Advancement.
The 12-month nutritional therapy series, approved by the National Association of Nutrition Professionals, prepares students to take the national credentialing exam. The six-term herbalism series, a highly suitable parallel program, provides in-depth training for a career in herbal medicine, with corresponding credit hours used toward a registered herbalist credential through the AHG.
This marks the fourth year that PCC has conducted such classes to provide dynamic training to current and future complementary health practitioners.
