What the FHP course involves

The Foot Health Practitioner (FHP) course consists of two parts:

  • Part One is the theoretical, which is done mainly via distance learning* with tutor and online assistance where necessary.
  • Part Two is the practical, which consists of two weeks continuous practical training. All practical training takes place at our National Training Centre in Southport.

*What is distance learning?

Distance learning means that you can complete all the theoretical aspects of the course from your own home.

This may sound difficult and challenging. You will have a dedicated tutor, who you can email if you feel you have reached an impasse,
