The BCAOA has established for our members a stringent code of ethics and high standards in professionalism and education, and now offers on-going continuing education courses. Our members have completed comprehensive courses of study approved by the BCAOA Board of Directors, and continue to build upon this broad base regularly. The BCAOA also has the mandate of educating the public on the considerable benefits aromatherapy has to offer.
In June 2018, the BCAOA amalgamated with her sister association, the British Columbia Association of Practicing Aromatherapists (BCAPA) to create a larger, integrated community of professional aromatherapists with access to both continuing education events and Occupational Titles. We have many members, in BC and beyond, who work in various areas of aromatherapy, from owning retail stores and websites to manufacturing aromatherapy products, to running their own aromatherapy practices where they offer the public the professionalism, wealth of knowledge and education they have attained as a member of the BCAOA.
