Train to be a Foot Health Practitioner

Stonebridge Foot Health Practitioner Centres qualify trainees to practice in the private foot care sector. Our students come from all walks of life, job descriptions and age groups. You could be Young or mature, have just been made redundant or a mum who just wants to return to work - the Foot Health Practitioner Courses can be pursued by anyone. Your background doesn’t have to be medical, as ex shop workers, cleaners, manual workers, therapists and nurses alike have all studied and successfully become Foot Health Practitioners.

How the training works

There are two options. You can choose between a 5 day practical course or an 11 day practical course. This diagram explains how the two parts of the course (theory and practical) link together.
