Having Trouble Finding the Right Organization?

You’re Not Alone. We’ve heard it before…

Other organizations offer NOTHING but learn-on-your-own THEORY. How-to? Umm… you’re on your own because their instructors have no real-world experience! That’s our HUGE difference….

Along with our Instructors’ videos (who actually have working practices!) we include study guides, supporting docs, worksheets, case studies, interactive Zoom calls for LIVE Q&As and actual case-by-case assistance, live events, private group support, and more!

NO other organization does what we do… we’re all about YOU and Your success.

I received my ND designation from Trinity … I graduated at their Practical Applications. (There was NOTHING practical about it!) Academy Epic picks up where Trinity left off… They taught in such generalities, I always felt like I wasn’t getting enough info or details… Thank you Angie for realizing that we do need an understanding of “both worlds” to be able to assist people in becoming healthy naturally. I really do appreciate you and all of your STAFF OF EXPERTS! And that you explain everything in such depth and in plain English, you make it so very easy to understand! (Condensed testimonial)

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works!

Academy Epic is the ORIGINAL Complementary & Alternative Health Practitioner Program

Academy Epic was the FIRST to bring the CAHP program to life more than two  years ago. The FIRST to QUALIFY for Certification. And while we are no longer the ONLY program out there… we ARE the ONLY ONE approved and supported by www.SCAHP.org
.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but when that imitation doesn’t serve anyone except those doing the imitating, we can’t agree. Please, don’t be fooled!
.
We strongly encourage you to vet any program and all statements. We have witnessed some TWIST THE FACTS to their Sole Benefit.
.
We are not afraid of Qualified and Sincere Competition – in fact we encourage it – but don’t steal from us! We want and need help to change the world to embrace natural health and take control of their lives.
.
Be informed! Have no regrets. While you’re Triple Checking claims and promises made, look for hidden fees or additional costs (or required books, for that matter). Academy Epic has NO small print and NO hidden fees. Period. We do recommend books, but they are NOT required.
.
One more BIG caveat… MANY of the programs out there are taught by those who NEVER had a practice of their own. Thus, your applicable real-world experience is ZERO. #truth And… ANY ONE who suggests they alone can teach you what you need to know, RUN! If you learn from one instructor, you will get ONE instructor’s sum total of experience and knowledge.
.
At Academy Epic, there are 20+ Professional Practitioners & Specialists with Practices of their own, teaching you the sum total of ALL of their knowledge and real-world experience. Doesn’t that make more sense?

What are the Degree Levels?

Associate, Bachelors, Masters, and PhD Level Degree / Diploma is a comparison to a Government funded Higher Education Authority Organization. This is for reference only. Academy EPIC is not accredited by Any U.S. Department of Higher Education Authority. Nor are various other “distant” learning establishments utilizing the “credit hours” method of comparison.

We are an Organization choosing to EQUIP and EMPOWER!

Are these courses at my own pace?

YES – All the modules are viewed ONLINE at your convenience. Don’t worry we won’t watch you curled up in your favorite pj’s with a cup of delicious hot tea….well unless you invite us over or FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or… you get the idea.

Do you need to be Board Certified in order to get a Diploma of Completion / Certified for the CAHP designation?

NO – The Board Certification from the SCAHP (Society of Complementary and Alternative Health Practitioners) is just an added level of certification….acquired after completing a 4-hour NO notes exam. Well maybe not “just” but it does lend a level of competency once completed.
.
Once you have completed the CAHP FINAL EXAM, you will be awarded your EARNED Testament of Completion Certificate (aka Diploma) and hold the credentials to offer your gifts to the world as a Complementary and Alternative Health Practitioner (CAHP).

Are the tests online too?

For the CAHP Program, NO – We are EPIC! Therefore, we do not require an OPEN book test online at the end of every module. WHY? Because it’s an OPEN book….where you are trying to find the answer for whoever wrote the strange “gonna trick you” question. So let’s skip the “games” and let’s focus on SUCCESS. Your FINAL exam will show us “you know what you need to know”.
.
The Certificate Collections have a Multiple Choice knowledge confirmation at the end of the course. Once completed it triggers a Certificate that is mailed to you.

How are you different than the “other” organizations that teach Natural Health concepts?
  1. We are NOT a school and we have no desire to be thought of as a school…..seeking Higher Education Authority or conducting itself as one. We are a KNOWLEDGE ACADEMY! Why does that matter? Because we WANT you to succeed. So we have chosen a Trainer/Instructor team that ACTUALLY uses the material. Not “theory” based Trainers who only teach a topic but ones that  ACTUALLY practice their Craft.
    .
  2. We are teaching current topics, with current SUCCESSFUL practitioners, using current technology to support you.
    .
  3. Our CAHP designation is so full of Knowledge it won’t even fit on the largest GB memory I-Pad available…so that is bigger than “one of those other health coach institutes” entire program……just saying…

.
Our Certificate Collections are segments customized from of our CAHP program. This allows you to select just segments and not feel pressured to purchase the entire CAHP- Premiere program.

Is Academy EPIC the only platform for the CAHP program?
Currently YES – it is the only one approved and supported by www.SCAHP.org. The Society of Complementary Alternative Health Practitioners. Though you may be Board Certified thru SCAHP without completing our Academy EPIC course, ultimately the board certified exam is based on the information trained within the CAHP program offered via Academy EPIC.
Are there CEU’s that need to be completed for being Board Certified?
We are pleased to meet the 23 CEUs required annually via the ANMCB Board Certification renewal procedures. You will receive these CEU requirements with ANY of our Collections and Selections options.  Once the “online quiz” is completed  you will be mailed a Certificate. You may make a copy and mail accordingly per ANMCB procedures.
.
For those seeking CEU outside the ANMCB, we utilize Westbrook University for the  Certificate of Completion provider. (Get the instructions here.)
