T4Y in Association with the Training Solutions Academy can now offer you this professional Foot Health Practitioner Course.
Whether you want to be able to treat a range of common foot problems for your friends and family or to set up in business as a Foot Health Practitioner this course will give you all the information you need to be able to offer your services safely and with a thorough understanding of the workings of the foot and lower limb.
This course is an in depth study and technical terms are used throughout since the work of a Foot Health Practitioner is an important profession and training must be thorough and complete.
When you are working with a client/patient you are responsible for your actions and great care must be taken at all times as your treatment will have an effect on the person you are treating. This effect must never be detrimental to the patient and the outcome must always bring an improvement to the patient’s foot health and general well-being. When a patient tells you that they are walking on air after being treated you know that you have performed your job well!
Each Module has a tutor marked assessment, via email, to enable the student to get the best from the course and reach the required standard.
This is a non-surgical course, on completion of the final assessment you will be awarded with the TSA Certificate of Achievement FHPF (TSA).
You will then be offered a place on the optional 5 day Practical Course, held in Louth, Lincolnshire, in a working clinic to enhance your skills, gain confidence and learn new skills such as scalpel work, dressings and medicaments and be practicing on real clients under supervision. This course is an optional extra should it be of interest.
