West Coast Institute of Aromatherapy

Become an Aromatherapist by taking your Aromatherapy Certification Course from our Aromatherapy School

Aromatherapy Certification Courses are our speciality and have been for over 20 years!

Aromatherapy Certification Course 101

This is the starting point on your journey to aromatherapy certification with our Aromatherapy School.  Starting at the beginning and systematically going through everything you need to know in order to be able to use essential oils safely and effectively.

You will learn how to use essential oils to enhance the health and happiness of yourself, your family and friends. While for some this may be the only course required, those wishing to become Professional Aromatherapists will continue on with the Aromatherapy Certification Course 201.

After completing this course, you will know how to effectively use Aromatherapy and the essential oils covered in this course for yourself and family. This aromatherapy course also lays down the foundation to work in the Aromatherapy Industry.  An example of this  would be selling essential oils, in a retail outlet or on line.  It could also lay down the foundation for the creation of your own product line.

Aromatherapy Certification Course 201

Combined with the Aromatherapy Certification Course 101, this is our Full Professional Aromatherapy Certification Course.  On successful completion of both courses we recognize our graduates as Clinical Aromatherapists.  Which is why the Aromatherapy Certification Course 101 is a prerequisite for this one.

In this course you will expand your knowledge of the concepts covered previously.   This course focuses on learning the skills required to create effective, unique blends and protocols for the challenges individual clients are dealing with. This course also covers in depth information on additional essential oil profiles and carriers.  Plus you learn about how essential oil work in each of the systems covered in the anatomy & physiology portion.

The Certificate we award to those who successful graduate from both courses, recognizes the graduate as a Clinical Aromatherapist.  A benefit for anyone wishing to practice Aromatherapy professional.  Health Care practitioners, such as massage therapists, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists etc. who wish to incorporate Aromatherapy into their practice. Those working in the Aromatherapy Industry, in retail stores or product formulation etc, will also benefit from the added information contained in these home study distance learning aromatherapy courses.

How the Aromatherapy Certification Courses are Structured
Downloading the Course
  • The Course Material is downloaded in a zip file. One for Aromatherapy 101 and another for Aromatherapy 201.
  • Each zip file contains three Course Books and one Workbook in PDF format. These PDF files may be printed, but cannot be changed.
  • The Workbook is the guide that takes one through the course material. The Aromatherapy 101 Workbook has 20 lessons, while the Aromatherapy 201 Workbook has 40 lessons.
Lesson Format
  • Each lesson in the workbook follows the same format of Read, Experience, Activity, Test.
  • Read the material as outlined in the lesson. Enjoy your personal experience with the essential oil or oils. Complete the activity designed for that lesson. Review what you have learned by taking the test.
  • Each student works through the course material at their own pace and they will design their study schedule to suit their own needs. There is a generous timeline within which to complete each course. My experience has shown that having a timeline helps keep students motivated and on track.
Support
  • Although working on your own can be a bit daunting, at WCIA help is always close at hand. Whether you pick up the phone, send an email, ask the question on the closed Facebook Group, or set up an appointment on Skype or Zoom, Beverley is always happy to answer your questions and students are encouraged to ask all their questions as they come up along the way.
  • Everything you need for your course can be found in the three Course Books and Workbook and there is no need to purchase any additional text books.
  • Of course, you will want to have some essential oils to work with, and you can purchase these from your own preferred supplier. However, in the Student’s Corner there is a list of reputable suppliers who offer our students a Student Discount. I generally recommend that you start with at least 10 – 15 essential oils, a couple of carrier oils and some containers to blend them into. More can be added as you go along. A list of these can also be downloaded from the Student’s Corner.
Additional Support and Benefits
  • A great place to interact with others who are taking, or who have taken, the courses is the closed Facebook group. It provides a relaxed environment in which to ask questions, share information and bounce ideas around in.
  • While the Student’s Corner is home to a variety of valuable additional resources to help round out the experience.
Beverley Hawkins, Founder and Owner
Bev Hawkins | West Coast Institute of Aromatherapy
  • I am here to answer all questions that might come up, as well as provide insight and support along this exciting journey of discovery.
  • Working in the health field for more years than I care to remember, I have been an aromatherapist since 1994. I founded my Aromatherapy School, the West Coast Institute of Aromatherapy, in 1999, offering Aromatherapy Certification Courses ever since. More than 2000 graduates have worked through the courses and are successfully using this knowledge to enhance the lives of everyone around them.
  • Aromatherapy and the effective use of aromatics is something that I am passionate about. So, maintaining a private practice allows me to gather hands on experience while working with my clients. Which in turn, helps me to continually enhance and improve my clinical skills.
  • The fact that, no matter how much you already know, there is always something more to learn, is something that I really appreciate about this field. I am always on the lookout for new ways to enhance my knowledge. This could be by way of adding more books to my already large collection, taking educational webinars and workshops, or having interesting and lively discussions with colleagues.
  • Being able to share this information with others is something that I really enjoy doing. It is a real privilege to be able to introduce to, and then guide them through their own exploration of this wonderful modality. It continues to be a real honor and privilege to be able to introduce my wonderful grads as successful, knowledgeable and effective Aromatherapists !

Essential Oil Chemistry - Sesquiterpenols. The chemistry of an essential oil can be a very interesting framework within which to understand the actions an essential may have. It is not the whole picture but it certainly gives one a foundation for a better understanding.
