The Washington Homeopathy Association encourages practitioners to become certified by the CHC:  Council for Homeopathic Certification

In 1991 the Council for Homeopathic Certification (CHC) was formed in response to a new vision for the future of homeopathy as a unified profession of highly trained and certified practitioners.

Certification by CHC is a public statement of recognition by a practitioner's peers of training, knowledge, skill and competence in classical homeopathy. The certifying board includes homeopaths from major health care professions, as well as the growing group of professional homeopaths. This certification also assists the general public in choosing appropriately qualified homeopaths from all professional backgrounds.

On July 21, 2017, the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) granted accreditation to the Council for Homeopathic Certification, for its Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH) credential for demonstrating compliance with the NCCA Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs. The CHC joins an elite group of organizations representing over 270 programs that have received NCCA accreditation. 

NCCA is the accrediting body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence and was founded in 1977 as a commission whose mission is to help ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public through the accreditation of a variety of certification programs that assess professional competence. NCCA uses a peer review process to: establish accreditation standards; evaluate compliance with these standards; recognize programs which demonstrate compliance; and serve as a resource on quality certification.

  "On behalf of the Board of Directors of the CHC I would like to thank everyone who helped in this effort. So many people have worked very hard to attain this long-standing goal and we are deeply grateful." Ann McKay, President of the CHC.

Candidates for certification must fulfill educational and clinical experience prerequisites established by the CHC in order to undertake a challenging written exam. Those who pass the written exam subsequently take an oral examination. Successful candidates receive a certificate stating that they are "Certified in Classical Homeopathy", and are entitled to use the credential 'CCH'. This certification is not a license to practice, but is helping to define a national identity for the homeopathic profession.
