Certificate in Naturopathy

The Certificate of Naturopathy provides the perfect opportunity to explore the amazing world of naturopathy, a holistic system of healing that incorporates a range of treatments and natural therapies, with the underlying belief that your body is able to fight infection and disease itself, given the right support.

Studies include the history of naturopathy, naturopathic principles and natural health philosophies, the study of herbal medicine - plant based medicine, and an introduction to nutrition, food, diets and nutrients and developing healthy, well balanced, nutritionally balanced food plans.

Providing a great overview of Naturopathy and the major Natural Medicine modalities, the Certificate in Naturopathy is ideal for those wishing to gain training in the foundational aspects of Naturopathy to complement their current skills or practice, for those wishing to 'taste test' Naturopathy to see if a future as a Naturopath is for them, or can be done as a general interest course to incorporate into your current lifestyle.

This program will give you credit towards the Advanced Diploma of Integrative Natural Health should you choose to continue on with your Naturopathy studies.

With a wide range of flexible study options and alternate payment plans, the Certificate in Naturopathy offers the ideal pathway to discover our unique Natural Medicine programs.

Distance learning is a great option if you're looking for the flexibility of being able to study without being on campus!

Your course materials & assessments are accessible on-line and you have access to your Trainer for help & support through on-line forums.

Studying by distance learning allows you to pace your terms studies around your lifestyle!

Nature Care College courses are not nationally recognised qualifications under the Australian Qualification Framework, do not lead to the issuance of AQF certification documentation and Nature Care College is not registered by ASQA to deliver the course.


The Certificate in Naturopathy course was an excellent introduction to the world of naturopathic medicine.  I'm looking forward to furthering my studies through Nature Care to become a practitioner & to help clients as well as my own family.  Burcu Vachan
