This course teaches safe and appropriate foot care techniques aimed at maintaining healthy foot function in all people. You will learn to identify high risk situations requiring referral to specialist podiatrists. Practical supervised experience in toe nail cutting and re distributive padding is part of this short course.
This course does not allow people to work as podiatrists or podiatry assistants. This course does not enable participants to work independently in this area in the community. Please consult your workplace guidelines and policies in relation to the foot care that you are able to provide.
Students are requested to allow their toenails to grow for one month prior to the course for the practical component of this course.
