Foot Health Practitioner (Advanced)
There is no greater satisfaction than to care for others, and our Foot Health Practitioner course gives you the opportunity to accomplish this in your own practice. The human foot is one of the most complex and neglected of body parts. Every step we take places 2.5 times our body weight on the 26 bones that make up each foot, and it has been estimated that we walk 3 times around the planet in a lifetime. The foot is highly sensitive, and like any machine part, suffers wear or damage when injured or stressed beyond its capability.
About the Foot Health Practitioner Profession
Here's where you come in. Though there may be little wrong with their feet, circumstances may prevent people looking after them. Arthritis, painful hip joints or stiff knees may put their feet out of reach or prevent use of scissors or nippers. However, others do have problems with their feet, from corns, calluses, verrucae, flat-foot and bunions, to nail conditions and structural defects, many of which can be treated without surgery or medical intervention. Some people just enjoy being pampered or are concerned with maintaining their bodies in optimum condition. All of these people need the help of this foot care practitioner course: a professional trained to deliver care and advice either in a private surgery or in the home.
Training Course Content
This course is made up of twelve lessons of theory training, which you complete from the comfort of your own home, and two weeks of practical foot health practitioner training, which is completed at one of our state-of-the-art Foot Health Training Centres.
