Q: Can I earn CE hours by taking online classes through Love and Light School of Crystal Therapy?
A: Great question- and this has a pretty long answer that we feel VERY passionately about, so I’m going to give you the inside scoop… I know this is a bit long, but it’s important for us that you have all the details!

All of our classes are accredited by the WMA (the World Metaphysical Association), and also an approved training provider by IPHM (International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine).

For years now, we’ve had accreditation from the NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork), and our programs have qualified for more CE hours than any other crystal healing program out there. 

This worked great for our handful of students who were working towards become LMTs (licensed massage therapists), but we quickly found that more and more of our students wanted to practice crystal healing as an energetic therapy all on its own, with their sessions focusing solely on energy healing with crystals- rather than just as a complement to massage. Still, we continued to offer CE hours to accommodate the students who needed them.

Over the past few years, though, the NCBTMB has drastically and continually updated their policies on how energy healing qualifies for their accreditation… and at this point, they no longer offer accreditation for energy healing, or any programs that discuss things like intuition & spirituality (which is a BIG part of what we do here! 🙂 )

So… yes, there are a couple of other crystal healing schools out there that currently offer CE hours. We’ve spoken to the NCBTMB directly about this issue, and they’ve told us that by keeping this accreditation, the other schools are saying that their programs & methods are meant to be used exclusively by LMTs (people who’ve been licensed to work with tissue manipulation, deep-tissue massage, stuff like that) rather than the larger group of energy-workers (people who practice crystal healing, the laying of stones, light-touch healing, Reiki, and other forms of energy healing/therapy). 

Additionally… these other crystal healing schools who are still offering CE hours will be up for renewal with the NCBTMB in a few months time- and at that point they’ll likely not be able to renew their accreditation at all because the NCBTMB is focusing on physical massage and nothing else at this point.

As our own accreditation came up for renewal last year, we had a big decision to make. We could have kept our ability to offer CE hours, but we ultimately decided this would present a HUGE disadvantage for our students who want to practice crystal healing without becoming LMTs. This also presented us with the opportunity to make some changes to our program that move us more into alignment with spirituality and place greater emphasis on intuitive development, which we think is of great importance for all energy healers. Crystal healing sessions are in very high demand right now, and as crystals become more well-known and mainstream over the next few years, this demand is only going to rise. 

The bottom line is… we want to empower our students to actually be able to use their Crystal Healing Certifications, including the amazing intuitive & spiritual aspects that come along with this, rather than limiting them and their future practices just because CE hours look good on paper. The crystal healing industry is booming- and it’s vital for us that our graduates can safely practice crystal healing in the real world without putting themselves in murky legal waters. 

We know that it sounds nice to offer CE hours (we would know, since up until this point we’ve been proud that our CCH program offered more CE hours than any other school out there, a whopping 26!) but… if we continued offering CE hours at this point, it would mean that about 99% of our CCH grads would never get to practice healing with crystals, simply because they aren’t Licensed Massage Therapists. This didn’t seem like a worthy trade-off to us, which is why we decided not to renew our NCBTMB accreditation.

Phew… I know that was long and took a lot of explaining- but I wanted you to have ALL the facts so you can make an informed decision.

Q: How do online classes work?
A: When you register for a class, you will receive a class access link, along with your personal student login credentials, to our virtual classroom. There you will be able to see and hear your instructor as well as a slide-show presentation of the class material. Students participating in classes will be able to interact with their instructor and classmates using our private student group as well as at our monthly office hours calls AND our monthly Q&A Nights. Althought our class videos are pre-recorded, monthly calls are held live. But each and every call is recorded for those who can’t attend the live event. This allows everyone to benefit from questions and other valuable information and resources shared by those on the live call. Students watching the recorded versions of calls will still be able to ask questions by contacting the class instructor with questions.

Q: Are refunds available if requested?
A: The value of our classes can’t be matched, and we know you’ll absolutely adore the content and materials that are included! Enrolling in any of our programs means you’re making a commitment and an investment in yourself and our School, and we do not accept refund or cancellation requests for any of our classes, programs or digital products.

We do not allow for the cancellation of payment plans before they are complete. By enrolling in a program with a payment plan option, you are legally committing to make all payments on time and in full according to the payment schedule laid out at the time of purchase. Change of mind refunds before the course starts will not be provided.

For complete information concerning our refund and payment policies, please review our Policies & Procedures.

Q: What happens if I don’t pass my exam?
A: We allow un-timed, open-note exams with unlimited attempts to pass.  Usually, if you do not pass twice in a row, we will be sure you get some 1-on-1 time with your instructor to cover any areas you’re having trouble with, and then you can try taking your exam again (although, to date, we’ve only had to do this once out of our thousands of students).  Most people pass with flying colors (even if they haven’t taken a test in a while!).

Q: How long does it take to complete the various programs offered by the Love and Light School of Energy Medicine?
A: The length of time it takes to complete a particular Love and Light program all depends on your work pace. Each student sets his or her own pace – it’s all up to you!

Q: Will my program completion be recognized outside of the United States?
A: You will have to check on the requirements/laws/regulations for your specific location to see if the program completion would be acceptable there (or if it is even required at all). You should be able to get the information from your equivalent of the department of regulations and licensing. Although we work to stay current on laws and regulations affecting our classes and programs of study and how these may relate to our students and alumni, we are unable to consistently monitor such laws and regulations in all areas. Please review our Policies and Procedures for a complete explanation.

Q: Do I need to be certified as a healer to begin working on people in a professional business?
A: Most places within the United States do not require energy healers to have certification. However, it does give your clients and employers peace of mind if they know you have completed some formal training on the subject. Additionally, it is highly recommended that you have adequate business insurance and a minister’s license.
