Read the common questions and answers about ACHENA Accreditation
The Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA), founded in 1982 as the Council on Homeopathic Education (CHE), is an independent accreditation agency that assesses the educational standards of homeopathic schools and programs. ACHENA Commissioners represent homeopathic educators, practitioners, students, allied health professionals and the public. As a nonprofit agency, ACHENA devotes all promotional activity and funds to the mission and goals of ACHENA.
Accreditation is a process used by institutions of higher learning that grants public recognition for achieving a definitive standard of excellence. Homeopathic schools and programs that receive ACHENA accreditation have met recognized standards of excellence aimed to protect the public and promote professionalism.
ACHENA is a member of the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA). ACHENA accreditation is a voluntary, peer-regulated process. To further strengthen the standards of homeopathic education and enhance consumer protection, ACHENA is now seeking recognition by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE).
The mission of ACHENA is to promote excellence in the education of professional homeopaths by:
- Establishing standards for the education of professional homeopathic practitioners
- Accrediting institutions and programs that prepare professional homeopathic practitioners
- Certifying continuing education for professional homeopaths
- Serving as a resource center that provides information about accreditation of homeopathy training programs
- Supporting administrators, educators and students in understanding the accreditation process
