Aptitude test for RMHInet-membership/RMHI-admissions — TCM Herbal Tutor minimum required scores


  • Membership/admissions guidelines (updated 2017.01.07) — The HerbalThink-TCM software, available as a free download, includes an aptitude test for aspiring TCM herbalists, which is required as part of your application for membership in our online brainstorming network or for admission as an RMHI certification candidate. To begin, simply follow the instructions in Beginner Tutorial #1.
  • The scores below supercede anything included within prior versions of the HerbalThink-TCM software. (Check back to this page; it will always contain the current, up-to-date requirements.)
  • The TCM Herbal Tutor module within HerbalThink-TCM starts you out at a score of "1.0" for each subcategory. These scores are not percentages. As you make steady progress, your scores will very gradually increase.
  • If you are having any problems or questions regarding these guidelines, please contact us.
