Continuing Education (CE)

*60 minute training hours or the equivalent = 1 CE

Continuing Education credits (CEs) are required for those who wish to maintain their membership level with some aromatherapy organizations and/or their Registered Aromatherapist (RA) credential through the Aromatherapy Registration Council (ARC). The AIA requires 12 CEs annually for our Professional members and 20 CEs for our Advanced Practitioner members. The ARC requires 100 CEs over five (5) years for RA renewal. 

The CE Providers listed below have submitted their courses for review by the AIA and are recognized for meeting the criteria for continuing education by the AIA Review Team. By attending a course offered by an AIA Recognized Provider means that your CEs from that course are preapproved for renewal credit with the AIA. Those certificates given at the end of courses recognized by the AIA Recognized CE Provider Program may bear the AIA Recognized CE Provider logo.

Note: Not all educational offerings by an AIA Recognized Provider may be recognized. Please check with the CE provider.
