The Healing Beyond Borders HTI Healing Touch Certificate Program is an exceptional, five-course certificate program that moves from introductory to advanced practice, preparing the participant for a critical role in the unfolding field of complementary and integrative health care. The course of study focuses not only upon professional caring for and serving of others, but also upon transformational self-development and caring for oneself.

Over 100 continuing education contact hours eligible towards certification are available for this certificate program. Participants receive a continuing education certificate of attendance upon completion of each course taught by a Certified Healing Touch Instructor and receive a Certificate of Course Completion issued through Healing Beyond Borders, upon meeting all necessary practicum requirements. The graduate of this certificate program is then eligible to apply for credentialing as a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner.

The Healing Beyond Borders HTI Healing Touch Certificate Program offers continuing education through the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA), the California Board of Registered Nursing (CBRN), and pending with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB).

Practitioner Certification
Credentialing as a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner is available to those who meet eligibility requirements and have successfully completed the entire five courses of study of the HTI Healing Touch Certificate Program. It is expected that prior preparation and work experience have contributed to the practitioner’s awareness and application of confidentiality, legal responsibility for hands-on practice, biomedical ethics, standards and scope of practice, therapeutic relationship, and civic involvement. Healing Beyond Borders administers certification through a separate review by a Certification Board using standardized criteria. Intended for the professional practitioner, certification acknowledges learning experiences and demonstration of competence as a Healing Touch Practitioner. The Certification Board does not license the practice of an individual or assume any legal responsibility for her/his practice.

Instructor Certification
To become a Certified Healing Touch Instructor (CHTI), in addition to completion of the entire five courses of study of the HTI Healing Touch Certificate Program and already being a current Certified Healing Touch Practitioner (CHTP), there are other course requirements. Each Certified Healing Touch Practitioner assists with numerous classes before teaching under supervision from an experienced Certified Healing Touch Instructor.  Applicants then submit an Application packet as a Certified HBB Instructor to the Healing Beyond Borders Certification Board for final review and determination for Certified Healing Touch Instructor (CHTP/I) designation
