CHEM CLASS AGENDA
Chem-Authorized Instructor = 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:
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 4-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.
CARE Chem Examiner One authorized to proctor a Chem Practice Class by having taught at least 6 official CARE Chem classes and having participated in at least one CARESS teleconference considering a pass/fail decision for a Chem Candidates performance.
SCHEDULING YOUR CHEM PRACTICE CLASS
CHEM WORKSHOP FEES
The $700 must be paid in full before one can be considered as a registered participant. Checks and/or credit cards okay. Full address, phone, and email required with registration. Make checks payable to CARE. The fee for repeat students is $350, payable in advance.
Similar professional, in-depth workshops can cost from $1000-$1500. When you begin teaching the CARE Chemistry class, the ala carte price has customarily been $220 (USD) for the 6-hour course. At this price you can earn your $700 workshop fee back with the first 4-5 students who take your chemistry class.
REQUIRED TEXTS AND DVDS
All 3 of these are available at www.Raindroptraining.com or by calling CARE at (800) 758-8629. Please bring both books to class.
PRE-WORKSHOP AND IN-CLASS ASSIGNMENTS
These presentations will begin on the second day. Lora Lee and Rihab will lecture the first day. Plenty of Valor, Cedarwood, Lemon, and Peppermint oils will be on hand as well as a variety of emotional releasing oils.
During Class Presentations:
EASY TOPICS - Make a presentation in class (approx. 20-30 minutes) on one of the following topics to be taken from the essential oils chemistry text. Everything you need to know is in the book. NOTE: Everyone will be giving a different topic from those given below. Submit your choices via email with a first, second and third choice in each of the two categories. First come first serve as to whom gets which topic. You must have sent in your payment for the Workshop to be eligible to choose. Choices are not considered until payment is made. Give your first, second, and third choices and email them to Lora Lee Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will notify you of which of your choices you have been assigned.
NOT-SO-EASY TOPICS - Make a presentation in class (approx. 30-40 minutes) on one of the following fourteen topics to be taken from the essential oils chemistry text. Give your first, second, and third choices and email them to Lora Lee Stewart at email@example.com. She will notify you of which of your choices you have been assigned.
Everything you need to prepare for these presentations is in the text, The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple. You need no other resource. CARE will provide handouts and the oils mentioned in the outlines to pass around for each of the sections during the Workshop.
However, during your Practice Chem Class, you will need to provide any necessary oils, as well as handouts consisting of the Periodic Table and the Course Outline. In making your presentations, consult the Course Outline, pp. 740-751, to make sure you cover the points on the outline.
SUMMARY OF PRE-CLASS ASSIGNMENTS:
YOUR CHEM PRACTICE CLASS
The Observation Class is not for CARE Credit, even though it will follow the same format as given in the Chem Class Outline, pp. 740-751. It will normally start at 8:30 am and finish at 4:30 pm with a lunch break of 1 hour, with a total of 7 hours of teaching. There must be a minimum of three people taking the class (not including the observer). There is no fee for the student participants to take the class. It is FREE. Neither do they earn any credit and no certificates are given.
The Chem-Authorized Candidate is to provide all necessary oils, Legos, and class notes, which are to include a copy of the Periodic Table and Chem Course Outline as given in the text.
Chemistry Books are to be provided to all participants. These may be copies they already own, ones they purchase from you, or your Chem Examiner at the beginning of the class, or copies loaned to them for the class. Chem-Authorized Candidates may purchase books from CARE for resale for up to 40% discount. In many cases, the Chem Examiner will provide the chem books for sale and keep the profits. Work this out in advance with your CARE Examiner as to whether you or they will provide books for sale.
The Chem Authorized Candidate is responsible for arranging a suitable
place with tables, chairs, white board/flip chart, and all other necessities
for teaching the Practice Chem Class.
Do not schedule a CARE Class to teach Chemistry until you have been notified of a successful pass. Upon a positive notification for your Practice Class, you will be authorized to schedule and teach CARE Chemistry classes and post such on the CARE Website.
