Foot Health Practitioner (Advanced) – Fast Track

Overview

Our Fast Track Foot Health Practitioner course allows you to become fully qualified in the fastest possible time. When you enrol you are given access to the theory lessons. After each lesson you complete a multiple choice question paper on the lesson. At the end of the course there is a final piece of course work which you complete while you are studying your practical with us. You pick the practical date you want to attend when you register and once you have completed your practical you will be fully qualified to begin your career as a Foot Health Practitioner. Typically students complete their course in under a month under the fast track route. Due to the “fast track” nature of this version of the course we are also able to offer it to learners at a significantly reduced cost to the ordinary version of this course.
