Agreement to C.A.S.E. Standards

Agreement to C.A.S.E. Standards

I hereby voluntarily choose to comply with the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy Council of Aromatherapy Schools and Educator's Core Curriculum Requirements as outlined in the C.A.S.E. Approved Standards for Professional Aromatherapy education document. I pledge that I will conduct all training management and instruction according to the highest standards of professional conduct as described and outlined in the NAHA Code of Professional Ethics. As an aromatherapy educator and/or director of the above school, I recognize that I am responsible for the management and instruction of courses covered in the Approved Standards for Professional Aromatherapy education document. I understand and agree that the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy and its affiliates assume no responsibility for my actions and activities as a voluntary educator/school in compliance with NAHA standards. I hereby release NAHA from any and all liability for any events relating to my management, teaching or practice of Aromatherapy.

As part of my NAHA Approved School curriculum I commit to the safe use of essential oils and do not teach, apply or promote contraindicated techniques such as: excessive drop techniques, the use of certain essential oils considered unsafe for neat use, or unsafe internal use practices. To learn more, please visit www.naha.org and read the information on safety.

I will include education awareness for the endangered and threatened species (such as Frankincense and Sandalwood) containing information about their historical use and the use of alternative essential oils so that the student has an understanding and appreciation for these species. For more information visit the NAHA website Resource webpage: http://naha.org/explore-aromatherapy/resources/

Neither I nor my school nor any approved aromatherapy instructors will create, post or advertise any false promises or statements in regards to an aromatherapy ëlicenseí or NAHA ëlicenseí. Qualifying students will receive a certificate of course completion and an aromatherapy certificate pertaining to each specific aromatherapy course. The certificate is issued by my school and not by NAHA. Students shall not be promised automatic membership with NAHA and are given instructions on how to become a member of NAHA. I understand that any breach of this agreement will cause my NAHA School approval status to be null and void and my school listing will be removed and placed on a list of non-compliant schools.

Please note that NAHA reserves the right to remove any school from our approved list at the board of director's discretion for any reason. Plagiarism of materials is grounds for immediate removal from the NAHA approved school list.
