National Certification Requirements

Posted by on Dec 21, 2011 in ARCB Board Certification | Comments Off

The American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB) is an independent testing board offering national certification to qualified reflexologists.  They’ve been around since 1991.  Receiving ARCB certification gives both the practitioner as well as the profession increased credibility, distinguishing the professional from the non-professional.

In order to be eligible to take the ARCB exam, you must have completed a reflexology certification course consisting of a minimum of 110 hours of “hands on” reflexology training. You must submit verification of completion of this course, along with an application form and a $295 application fee.  The exam consists of both a written and practical test, as well as completion of 90 hours of documented sessions.

Once you apply for the exam, (at least 2 months in advance of testing date), you will receive a study book to help prepare you for the written test.  When you receive your certification, you will be registered with ARCB, and listed on their site as a professional reflexologist.  An annual fee, as well as continuing education hours are required in order to maintain your ARCB certification.
