A CI, CCI, or SCCI who has been officially authorized by CARE to teach Essential Oil Chemistry Classes (6 hours) for CARE Credit. To become a Chem-Authorized Instructor, one must fulfill the following two requirements:
(1) Attend a 3- or 4-day CARE Chemistry Instructors Workshop; and
(2) Arrange to teach a practice CARE Chemistry Class in the presence of a CARE Chem Examiner.
The Practice CARE Chemistry Class is not an official CARE class for credit and must have a minimum of three students present. Arrangements are to be made for the observing Chem-Authorized CCI to be reimbursed for all travel/lodging (if necessary) and to receive a non-refundable fee.
Chem-Authorized Status is a special appointment granted by CARE based on considerations of each individual applicant. Anyone who has taken the CARE Chemistry Class for 6 hours credit is eligible to take the 3-day Advanced Chemistry Workshop, but to teach chemistry for CARE, one must be at least a CARE Intern.
CARE maintains the right to revoke such authorization for cause at any time. To maintain Chem-Authorized status, the CI or CCI must teach at least two official CARE Chemistry classes per year with a minimum of 3 students each.
