Become a Foot Health Professional

Training4Feet is part of the The SMAE Institute which has been training individuals in Foot Care excellence for 100 years, with our qualified practitioners successfully setting up their own practice/clinic in the private foot care field. We are the only establishment to run a University Credit Rated Foot Health Course in the UK, which is Credit Rated by Queen Margaret University. Our students come from all walks of life and as we have no age barriers, you can study with us whether you are 18 or 65. Our courses are written to allow access to a broad range of people with different life experiences and academic backgrounds, and many join us following personal recommendation.

Today, a Foot Health Professional keeps people’s feet healthy and gives advice on day-to-day foot care to ensure they are well kept into old age. As people are living longer today, more care is required to keep feet healthy and comfortable.

There are two elements to our FHP course, Theory & Clinical Training.  The Theory course consists of 12 modules and, once completed, this is followed by two weeks of Clinical Training. For more information please click here.
