Reflexology Teacher Training Course

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


RAC TEACHER TRAINING

GOALS

  • Provide an opportunity to explore and/or review new concepts such as learning styles, teaching styles and principles of adult learning.
  • Promote excellence in RAC education through clearly defined methodologies and concepts thereby providing a strong educational basis for instruction and uniformity across Canada.

OBJECTIVES

  • Recognize the different learning styles and develop the teaching styles to assist each student in fully realizing their potential within the learning environment.
  • Learn how to develop and implement lesson plans, acquire resource tools and teaching aids to incorporate in own class teaching.
  • Develop a full understanding of the Instructor's responsibilities.
  • Present the information and skills attained in a professional manner.

BENEFITS

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.
