This Foot Reflexology Course will prepare you to challenge the Reflexology Association of Canada Board Exam to be certified as an RCRT. (This is not mandatory and additional fees with the association will apply).
When completed this course, you will be presented with a certificate of completion. With that certificate, you can practice reflexology.
To be an RCRT (Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist) there are a few additional steps:
- You would have to become a member of the Reflexology Association of Canada (RAC – I recommend after the written exam is completed).
- Submit your certificate and transcripts to RAC. Once accepted, you would have to write an open book board exam and pass with 80% to be approved.
