The American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB) was created in 1991 to promote the field of Reflexology through the recognition of competent professional practitioners.
Reflexologists who are involved in the national certification process promote a higher standard of education, ensure public safety, and demonstrate their commitment to the profession through self-improvement. In short, obtaining your national certification in Reflexology is a mark of distinction and confidence in the quality of services provided.
ARCB conducts testing throughout the year in various cities across the country. Upon registering to take the exam you will receive a study guide which defines the American Standard reflexology charts and aids in preparation for the exam.
Once you've achieved ARCB® certification it is maintained through payment of an annual renewal fee and completion of 12 continuing education credits every 2 years.
