Foot Health Practitioner - Fast Track

This foot health practitioner course is the only programme that will allow you to qualify and start practising as a foot care practitioner in a matter of weeks. With 12 lessons of theory training, which you can explore from the comfort of your own home, and one week of practical training at one of our state-of-the-art foot health training facilities, you can get certified in as little as 2 weeks. For more information on the practical session, take a look at our foot health website: www.foothealthschool.com.

From the moment of enrolment, you will have instant 24/7 online access to your theory lessons, ready for whenever you want to study. At the end of each lesson, there is a multiple-choice question assessment. Completing these assessments is key to your progress, while the feedback you gain will help you make the most out of your course.

At the end of the course, there is a final piece of coursework that you can complete alongside the course’s practical element, under the guidance of a dedicated and experienced tutor. This is so that your tutor can easily address any questions and you can benefit from exchanging opinions with your fellow students, which will help supercharge your success.

This foot care practitioner course allows you to pick the date you want to attend your practical training. Once you have finished your final assessment and the one-week training, you are qualified to work as a foot health practitioner. Typically, students take just under a month to finish this foot practitioner course. As this is a “fast-track” course, the cost to enrol and qualify is significantly lower than our standard foot health programmes.

Who should study this Foot Health Practitioner – Fast Track course?

This fast-track foot practitioner course is great for anyone with an interest in foot health that is looking for a rewarding career that they can fit around their home life. It is also suitable for those already working in beauty therapy or healthcare that would like to add foot care to their skill set and expand their services.

Foot care is one of the best careers to offer you the independence of having a side-business and the routine of full-time employment. It’s flexible and completely adaptable to suit your lifestyle and time commitments; you can work during mornings, evenings or even on the weekends and still enjoy a steady income.

Plus, demand is high for foot care treatments. From pregnant women to people suffering from different affections that limit their movement, to those simply looking for a foot pampering, there is always a need for foot care regardless of location.

The sooner you learn and qualify, the quicker you will be able to gain work. That is why this fast-track option exists: to help you get your foot health career off to a flying start and begin reaping the benefits of this rewarding and lucrative career.

What happens after the course?

At the end of this course, you can put your newly-developed skills to practise as a professional foot health practitioner. You can set up your very own clinic, work from home or build a mobile practice by visiting patients at home. Our foot health courses include modules on how to start your own business and how to market your services.

Alternatively, you can continue your studies and offer additional services to your clients by expanding your skills in Reflexology for Foot Care Specialists, Aromatherapy or Holistic Massage. Take a look at our beauty therapy courses for more information.

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
