Answer
Hello Rose,

I am not aware of any health certification that does not require education/training by an accredited provider. Consider this - would you want to be taken care of by someone who has never had any practical experience? Most require a degree (associate's or bachelor's) in addition to an examination. For example, to become an LPN, in most states you must meet a minimum number of contact hours before you are eligible to sit for the examination. There are many advantages of attending a school, as most assist with job placement.

All the best,
Dr. W
