The 500 Hour Professional Diploma requirements are quite different than those for the Freelancer Experiential Certificate. While the Freelancer requires 500 hours of experience; the MIR Graduate is only required to have an additional 150 practicum hours. The 250 academic hours from the home study are credited toward the Professional Diploma. Hence the 100 hours of practicum of the HSCC plus an additional 150 hours will meet the 500 hour requirement for the Professional Diploma.

The MIR Home Study Graduate will be expected to provide additional requirements for Professional Level Certificate:

1) Verified 150 additional hours reflex experience recorded in MIR Reflexologist Log Book;

2) Six letters of reference: (one doctor, two nurses, three patients);

3) Five case histories;

4) Theoretical explanation of a reflexology mechanism of action, i.e., how and why it works from your own experience.

5) Your own personal Reflexology/ReflexoCurist Creed or update of previous Creed.

After attainment of this professional credential the MIR recipient is qualifed to receive the two (2) advanced ReflexoCure probe tips for the DRUMmer aka Dr. Riley's Ultra (Reflexology) Massager (both the 1/4" brass and the 3/8" stainless steel probes are demonstrated on the DRUMmer training video).

Payment of $500 should be made with submission of application packet. If requirements are satisfactorily met the Diploma will be issued. If submitted documents fail to meet the MIR criteria, only $350 of initial payment will be refunded; the balance will be applied to pay the expenses incurred in researching the validity of the information packet. The MIR Graduate may choose to resubmit his corrected postgraduate packet, but the full payment of $500 will again be required.
