The Certificate in Holistic Spa Management program offers foundational training in effective spa management, including an overview of business management protocols for spa management, customer service, ethical business practices, and a foundation in aromatherapy to provide basic knowledge in the use and administration of essential oils, a modality often used in spa therapies.
This program is developed in alignment with the education standards for spa management as set by the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI) (https://www.ahlei.org).
Additionally, after successful completion of the program, massage therapists with a current license can elect to sit for the NCBTMB Specialty Professional Certificate in Spa Management (https://exam.ncbtmb.org/apply/)
NOTE: ACHS students who have already completed the AROMA 101 Introduction to Aromatherapy course can elect to take the AROMA 103B Bridge course to complete the additional spa training covered in the AROMA 103 course. There is a flat fee of $99 to complete the Bridge course; additional materials fees may apply for students that need to replenish their AROMA 101 essential oil kit also used in the AROMA 103 course. Please contact Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
