About the Level 5 Master Herbalist (Phytotherapy) Certificate

The term phytotherapy refers to the use of plant-based medications. Long predating orthodox treatments, natural and herbal remedies are the oldest form of medicine. This Level 5 phytotherapy course seeks to educate students about the innumerable benefits of alternative healthcare. Among other things, learners will discover the uses and properties of almost 900 healing herbs.

This online herbalist course will also delve into the history of herbal medicine. Students will study plants; focusing on growth, pollination and toxicity. They will also pay attention to traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda medicine and draw comparisons to more common clinical treatments. What’s more is that this online qualification offers additional modules in essential oils and aromatherapy; making it a perfect choice for nature enthusiasts.

Who should study this course?

This distance learning course is aimed at individuals with an interest in natural healing. Whether you have a personal interest in alternative medicine or you are considering beginning your journey down a new career path, this home study course will help to unlock your potential.

At Stonebridge College, we do not ask our students for previous qualifications or experience. As long as you have access to our online platform, a willingness to learn and a dedicated interest in phytotherapy, we will welcome you with open arms.

What happens after the course?

Once you have completed this course, you may choose to progress to further study. There are a number of herbal medicine courses available at universities throughout the UK. Once you have a degree in herbal medicine, you could become an independent herbal medicine practitioner.

If you want to progress directly into employment, you will now be eligible to apply for a number of related jobs. There is a large market for herbal medicine and many people are enthusiastic about tracking down unorthodox remedies. You could end up:

  • Consulting for herb product retailers
  • Acting as a nutritional consultant
  • Writing about health

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.

"The Affiliation of Ethical & Professional Therapists is dedicated in assisting you as a  member, in the promotion and growth of your practice. Your profile will be entered onto our website and each month you will receive a free e-zine full of business tips and valuable information".
