ACHS is Now the Only U.S. Accredited School Approved as an IIPA Sanctioned Program

The American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) has been approved as a sanctioned school by the International Iridology Practitioners Association (IIPA), making ACHS the only U.S. accredited school approved by IIPA with a sanctioned program. ACHS is accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council, a U.S. Department of Education and Council for Higher Education Accreditation recognized accrediting agency.

“We’re very proud our Certificate in Iridology Consulting program has been approved by IIPA,” says ACHS President Dorene Petersen. “IIPA maintains the utmost integrity, professionalism, and certification and standards, and provides a wonderful opportunity for iridology professionals to learn from, and exchange information worldwide. IIPA’s sanctioning of our Certificate program gives ACHS students even more confidence in their training and professional goals, and provides a strong connection to an outside organization with almost 30 years’ experience in the field.”
