WHAT IS THE GMP FOR MEDICINE MAKERS’ INTENSIVE?
This is 24 hours of intensive materials for students to have an even greater depth of training in certain specialty areas, followed by two live interaction sessions with instructors. These are designed for apothecarists that would like to create a product line, specializing in a certain area of herbal preparations, or to set up a home apothecary. This intensive will focus on GMP regulations, guidelines and documentation that herbalists need to know. This material is not included in the main foundational 12-week Apothecarist course. There is no pre-requisite for this course.
