Course approved for 37 CHES Hours / 20 Advanced Hours.

This is a 37 CE hour self-study course. The book, workshop & audio CDs are all required to complete the online test.  The Intuitive Eating book, workshop MP3s, and audio book are created by the original Intuitive Eating Pros. You can take this course just for continuing education hours or use it as Step One in achieving the Intuitive Eating Certification.

To take the test, print a copy of the questions to use as you read the book and listen to the MP3s and CD. Go online and fill in the answers. Course credit is given when the test is submitted.
