Once you’ve achieved ARCB® national certification, you are required to earn 12 hours of continuing education (CE) every 2 years. 

The 12 CE hours may be a single or combination of activities/courses, or service to the profession of reflexology. CE hours may include classes taught in other countries, online, hybrid, or in-person.

There are three (3) options to gain ARCB CE credits (details below): 

1)  complete an ARCB Approved CE Course,

 2)  complete an ARCB Supported CE Course, and

3) through service to the reflexology profession.

ARCB Supported


ARCB accepts CE courses approved by other national certifying organizations such as the National Council for Reflexology Educators (NCRE), Continuing  Medical Education (ACCME), the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCAA), and other practices in medicine and Complementary & Alternative Health. 


Service to Reflexology 

ARCB recognizes the contribution that our members make to the continuation and growth of our Profession.  For example: Board of Directors or Committee Member of Reflexology organizations; author of science-based research or practice-related materials; ARCB CE Providers, ARCB Fellowship and other Reflexology Educators.  Service with international, national, regional, and state reflexology organizations earns you 12 CEs for each year of service.  

 Once you have completed all 12  CEs 

please submit digital  proof of the CEs to

over 70 years of age

Certificants who are at least 70 years of age are exempt from further CE requirements if they  have completed at least 24 hours of CE since their Certification .  

It is the responsibility of the Certificant to notify ARCB along with a copy of a government-issued identification that they have met this exemption requirement. 

Failed to meet your
CE requirements?

Certificants who do not achieve the required CE hours should notify the ARCB® office about how to correct this problem.  If you fail to correct the issue, you will be placed in lapsed status.

Lapse status requires that you return your ARCB® certification documentation and pin as well as remove all ARCB® logos and information from your website and marketing materials.
