Dear Students: For those of you interested in taking your reflexology services to the next level, the Reflexology Teacher's Training Course may be for you. Following is information on how to become a Foot Reflexology Teacher with the Reflexology Association of Canada. Please contact me with any questions or if I can be of further assistance. Many thanks, Diana & Danielle
Many reflexologists spend much of their practice gaining experience and building their business within their communities. Once they have reached a certain plateau, many wonder what the next step is. Teaching is a natural progression and choice for many today. Not only does teaching offer personal satisfaction, but it also strengthens one's own professional career. By educating and developing skilled and qualified practitioners, a teacher supports the growth of a strong and vibrant profession while supporting the association by encouraging new membership.
This ensures the ongoing recognition and credibility of reflexology both regionally and on a national and international scale. The reflexology teaching profession is an open market for qualified and enthusiastic individuals. Following completion of the RAC Teacher Training Certification Program, a RAC teacher is qualified to guide students through the RAC programs in a range of settings, including colleges, trade schools, and Continuing Education Programs as either separate programs or electives. Completing RAC Certification qualifies a reflexologist for licensing in Ontario and for provincial registration in other provincial bodies.

Training will include instruction through review of prescribed texts, lecture, practical exercises, assignments, quizzes, assessments of lesson plans and mini presentations in the following:

If successful, the newly designated 'Instructor Trainee' (not certified) will be expected and contracted by RAC to instruct one (1) Foot Reflexology Certification Course within a two-year period from the in-class portion of the program. The course shall be taught as per the class schedule found within the Instructor Training Manual.

The Trainee will be asked to video tape or photograph their teaching environment to ensure professionalism on the job.
