ARCB Exam Schedule


Washington State law requires that reflexologists in Washington become certified in order to practice. The only exceptions to this rule are for massage therapists and acupuncturists, who may practice reflexology but may not call themselves reflexologists unless they have become certified by the state.

To become certified as a reflexologist in Washington State, once you have completed your reflexology education, you must take and pass the American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB) exam.

Please find ARCB test dates, ARCB Review Session dates, and other study suggestions below.

American Reflexology Certification Board Review Session:

  • Instructor: Christine Freeland, RF
  • Cost: $70
  • Schedule: Sunday 9am – 1pm
  • Dates:  June 10 and September 16
  • This review session is not for credit.

Here is a review of the ARCB Review Session from 2015, with Christine Freeland:

“I just opened my ‘congratulations’ letter from ARCB, and I was frankly shocked to see that I got a 96% on my A&P because I thought after the exam that I’d gotten more wrong on that portion. I absolutely credit both Christine’s exam review class and Bethany’s A&P review class with that result.  The classes were timed perfectly in advance of the exam, and really hammered home the essentials that many of the exam questions addressed. Thank you all for great learning and preparation…and I would advise all students to included in their preparation both the exam review and A&P review.”


To study for the exam, you might also consider reviewing the A&P classes or taking the A&P Review:
