Contact your teacher or examiner to set a sitting date to

and other electronic devices must be turned off and put away. A maximum of 3
1/2 hours will be given to complete your examination. Exam rewrite fee must be
paid at the Head Office prior to the exam date.
If the nearest examiner is too far away from you, you may
pick a professional proctor if it meets the Acceptable

private residence; only in a professional proctored environment. Please
submit your proctor choice to the college for approval.

College/university administrators, instructors, or academic advisors
- Educational officers of a military
installation or correctional facility
All proctors must have a

exam. All proctors must be approved by this college. Proctors may charge
fees for their services. Any fees incurred are the student’s responsibility.

roommates of the student or student's family
- Co-workers, supervisors or business associates
- Peers or students

This list is not all inclusive and
this college may deny any proctor that appears unacceptable.
Once a proctor has been
approved, we will mail a sealed envelope containing the written
examination and instructions to the proctor. You may arrange for an
examination date suitable with your proctor. During the examination

or examiner to arrange a date to complete your
practical examination. The practical examination consists of giving
the examiner a complete foot reflexology session. During the
examination period, only materials required for the practical
examination will be permitted (such as towel, oil and wipes). The
examiner will not provide these materials. Bring with you, your
receipt of proof of an examination fee paid or the prescribed
examination fee and present it to the examiner. Also, provide to
your examiner your Reflexology Record Portfolio. Your examiner will
then select a number of session records to check. After
your portfolio has been marked, your portfolio will be returned to you.
If the nearest examiner is too far away from you, you may
elect to have your practical examination video recorded if approved by
the Ontario College of Reflexology. This consists of giving a
volunteer a complete foot reflexology session while your work is
being video recorded with no open books or charts visible to the
student. Cell phones and other electronic devices must be turned off
and put away. Video taping is the responsibility of the student to
arrange for and costs involved with video taping. Only CD and DVD North
American video format (not 8mm) will be accepted. Electronic videos
can be submitted on USB memory sticks, DVDs or online sharing on DropBox,
Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive. Other formats must be approved first
by the college. Upon completion of the
practical examination, send the video recording and Reflexology Record
Portfolio by traceable mail (we will not be responsible for missing
deliveries). Your portfolio
will be returned to you upon review and marking by the professor
assigned to you.
