Registration in a Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy Course means you have reviewed and agree to the below Registration Policies and Student Waiver.
1. Purpose of Certification
The science and art of crystal healing benefits both healers and their clients. Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy believes that this modality should command the same respect as other alternative medicines and has created the Hibiscus Moon Certification Program to that end. The Certification Program provides training and guidance to new healers and reaffirms the capability and qualifications of current practitioners. The Program is designed to promote uniformity in the practice of crystal healing, raise the standards set for crystal healers, and create guidelines for both crystal healing methods and client expectations. When using a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer, clients can feel confident and protected knowing their Healer has been trained and evaluated by the superior staff at Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy, where excellent care is our mission.
There are currently no agencies or organizations that standardize certification specifically for crystal healing and most states do not have laws that license or otherwise regulate the crystal healing practice. In light of this, Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy has dedicated itself to creating a Certification Program that sets legitimate industry standards and provides oversight in the absence of state or federal regulation.
Hibiscus Moon is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider. NCBTMB Approved Provider for 18 CE’s for the Certified Crystal Healer Course. You are encouraged to perform your own due diligence in researching the specific requirements and learning needs for CE’s in your geographic region as these vary greatly around the world. In addition, the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy has been accredited through the World Metaphysical Association and the American Council of Holistic Healers as a teaching program, giving Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy the legitimacy and authority to administer a Certification Program.
Please keep in mind that you’ll need to graduate by October 2020 in order to receive these credits.
The Hibiscus Moon Certification Program is an exclusive provider of quality teaching and certification in crystal healing. You can learn more about Hibiscus Moon’s qualifications as a teacher here. We also encourage you to explore the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork for further information on the requirements placed on the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy to receive Approved Provider status.
3. Certification Requirements
In order to be certified as a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer, candidates must satisfactorily complete all requirements of the relevant Certification Program including having paid for the course in full. Candidates must first agree to our Code of Ethics, committing them to the ethical and professional use of crystal healing. Candidates are required to complete a sequence of classes in the Certification Program including satisfactorily completing required assignments. Further, for the Certified Crystal Healer Course, candidates must complete at least three (3) physical in-person crystal healing sessions and submit a survey review completed independently by their client for each session. In addition, candidates will submit two (2) photographs of themselves in their healing space along with the crystals they will be using and their volunteers (volunteer faces need not be shown in the photo to maintain their privacy at their discretion). Candidates are required to complete the sessions with three separate adult individuals in-person to provide the Program with the most accurate evaluation of a student’s progress.
The relationship between Healer and Client is intimate and founded on trust, and as such, we only certify those healers who abide by the highest standards expected of every Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer. Failure to complete any of the requirements of the course is considered failure of that requirement. Candidates must satisfactorily complete all requirements of the Program in order to be certified. A healer must complete the Program only once, after which there is no requirement to renew or submit to review in order to maintain certification.
4. Code of Ethics and Grounds for Removal
Our Code of Ethics are a foundational component of the Certification Process. We also maintain a private Facebook Group for our students and alumni for which we have basic rules of respect and conduct. While we cannot control the behavior of candidates outside the program, variance from these terms during the Certification Course is not tolerated. Hibiscus Moon takes the Code of Ethics very seriously as a foundational element of the Certification Process and proper behavior is expected from every student at all times. Students receive one written warning for violating the Code of Ethics, for violating our Facebook Rules or for otherwise engaging in inappropriate behavior. Students can be removed from the Course and/or the Facebook Group, without refund, for any future infractions. While Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy remains committed to providing the best guidance and support to its candidates, it also has a responsibility to its other students, graduates and their clients to ensure the integrity of the Certification Program. By registering for the Course, all candidates agree to these terms and accept the consequences for failing to adhere to the Code of Ethics, our private Facebook Group rules, and acceptable conduct.
When you purchase audio or video content from Hibiscus Moon, LLC, you are granted permission (which is limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable) to listen to, download or stream such content to your computer and/or other device(s) solely for your personal, non-commercial use. You agree to not copy, reproduce, distribute or use the content other than as set out in this contract. You are not being certified to teach the content. You must not sell, transfer, lease, modify, distribute or publicly perform the content in any manner and you must not exploit it commercially. You agree to not tamper with the content or create any derivative works therefrom.
5. Benefits of Certification
Everyone benefits from the Hibiscus Moon Certification Program, Crystal Healers and clients alike. Healers are better trained and prepared for their own crystal healing practice, and clients are better informed of the qualifications and training of their healers. In addition to training, Certified Healers also receive a copy of the Code of Ethics, a model Intake Form for use in their practice (including a HIPAA compliant addendum), and a Disclosure Notice informing their clients about their practice and qualifications. Healers are not required to use these forms, but Hibiscus Moon attempts to provide every resource to its healers. Ultimately, healers receive a Certificate of Completion and are able to use the initials CCH after their name to signify their “Certified Crystal Healer”. Certification is a way to both improve your capabilities as a healer and to exhibit your qualifications to potential clients.
Please remember, even with certification, crystal healers are not licensed medical doctors and cannot give advice in place of a trained medical professional. Crystal healing is meant to supplement, not replace, medical treatment and clients should always consult with their doctor before beginning any sort of energy work. However, should you provide your healer with personal medical information, your healer is bound by the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPPA”) and has legal requirements to protect your private information. Please be careful what information you provide to your healer, and ensure that your healer engages in good security practices in maintaining client records.
6. Refunds and Replacements
Please think carefully about whether this is the right time in your life to take part in this wonderful course. Because of how content is distributed, student management, grading, and organization that is the nature of this sort of academy, we have certain refund restrictions. You can take this course for a full 21 days. If you do the homework and participate in our forum and don’t feel I’ve delivered on my promises here, we’ll happily refund 100% of your money. Important: To be eligible for a refund, you must request the refund ON the 21st day of class. We require your completed homework and noted forum participation from all available classes. Thank you for understanding. Purchases are non-transferable.
No refunds will be given to those students who have been removed from the program for violations of the Code of Ethics or violating Facebook Group Rules and those reasons will be given in writing. Nor will refunds be given for students who choose not to complete the program requirements.
There are no refunds due to technical issues. Our products are bug-free and we use industry-standard streaming formats for you to choose from. So, we have no technical issues. However, should you run into tech difficulties with accessing anything on your end, our Support team will very happily assist you until the problem is solved.
You will need to have at least a basic level of computer and Internet skills and Internet access that is faster than dial-up speed. It is recommended that you not use a smartphone to consume all our digital content.
You will also need proficiency of the English language in order to understand curriculum and submit assignments.
Hibiscus Moon Certified Healers will be mailed a paper Certificate of Completion upon successful graduation of the course. Additional copies of the certificates may be requested for a convenience fee of $5 each ($10 each for international).
7. Delinquent Payment Policy
As long as you make your payments when they are due, you will continue to have access to the HMCA course. However, when a payment is not paid on time, your status will be changed to “delinquent.” This means that you will be suspended from the course, from access to the course materials and Facebook Group. Once you have corrected your delinquent payment status, your student status will change to “in good standing” and all access will be reinstated back to normal, however it may take up to 4 (four) business days to restore all access.
We do not offer any special or extended payment plans outside of what is offered at the time of registration. Our system will automatically attempt to obtain your payment 3 times before placing your account into collections. Once in collections, any manual re-bills will incur a $20 administrative charge. Should your account need to be referred to collections, you will be fully responsible for the total sum plus 18% interest, immediately in addition to any legal fees or expenses which may be incurred in efforts to obtain full payment.
While Hibiscus Moon is dedicated to certifying only those Crystal Healers who meet the high standards of the Certification Program, there are many things outside its control. Because there is no accrediting body that exists to approve crystal healing certification, Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy is necessarily a self-certifying body and sets its own standards for certification. Further, although there are no governing federal laws, and most states have no applicable regulations, it is possible new laws regarding crystal healing will develop in the future. Hibiscus Moon endeavors to remain current on all laws related to crystal healing, but may not always be up to date on every law and does not monitor the laws of every state and/or nation on behalf of its healers. Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy Certified Healers are responsible for knowing the laws of their states and/or locality and for keeping their clients informed of those laws. Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy assumes no liability to its candidates or their clients for changes in the law after certification and makes no representations to the ongoing legality of the practice of crystal healing or the Hibiscus Moon Certification Program.
Further, Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy has limited oversight of its healers outside their voluntary participation in the program, and as such is not responsible for their conduct. Much of the Certification Program is completed using the honor system, and Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy is not responsible if candidates cut corners or otherwise cheat in order to gain certification. Clients using a healer claiming to be certified by Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy are encouraged to contact us to verify their certification, but Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy cannot warrant that it has accurate or up-to-date contact information for its Certified Crystal Healers. The Hibiscus Moon Certification Program is a service provided to improve the field of crystal healing, but does not guarantee results or otherwise warrant any type of outcome from the Certification Process.
The Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course is offered with lifetime access. This specifically refers to the lifetime of the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course and not that of individual people.
Recordings may be made available to future students/clients. By taking the course and participating in online discussions, your voice may be recorded and used in course materials in the future in accordance with Section 3 of the Waiver and Release below.
