How We Teach
A deeper understanding of foot health
We believe in providing our students with a deeper understanding of foot health. Going beyond the practical application of treatments to a better understanding of how and why the treatments work for clients.
We believe in active learning, be that in classroom or online. We encourage all of our students to be active participants on our courses. This is assisted in the way our foot health care training is structured and by our small class sizes.
Practice Makes Perfect
All our courses include practical application. We encourage students to continue perfecting their techniques once they’ve completed a foot health care training course. We are always happy to review your work and offer advice.
Part of a foot health care community
At Only Footcare, we are committed to getting these amazing technologies to as many people as possible. We want all our students to feel part of a community with ongoing support and advice available once you’ve completed a course.
Once Certified, practitioners will be added to our practitioners directory to promote your services.

Foot Health Care Training
Currently we offer 1-2-1 training in limited venues. Please contact us directly to agree your training at email@example.com. If you are attending an in-person training, the workshop is 4 hours long and you will have a practical assessment on the day working on a patient and receive your certificate. We will increase class sizes as Covid restriction ease and in accordance with UK Government guidelines.
If you are attending one of our online classes, the training is approximately 3 hours long which includes practical work. There is plenty of opportunity to engage with the trainer and other students and ask questions etc. We keep the class numbers small so that everyone gets an opportunity to participate. There is a short comfort break during the class. You must complete a case study in your own time to send to your trainer before you get your full certification.
The Onyfix training workshop is a 3 hour fully interactive online program, plus time producing your case studies.
We supply you with a ‘training foot’ for the practical element of the online class. Together as a group activity we work with the Toeflex gel to explore how it works, how to apply it and remove it etc.
There is a short knowledge test to complete at the end of the training session, it is multiple choice with a pass rate of 80%. There are no trick questions, everything you need to know is covered in the training.
If you are completing an online class then your certificate will be sent to you once you have completed your case study successfully. We require you to send pictures of your case study to your trainer for evaluation.
If you attend an in-person class, you will receive your certificate on the day.
If you are already trained with another product and know the fundamentals of toenail reconstruction then you should make the transition to Toeflex very easily. The principals are the same, but the application technique is different. We would advise you to attend a Toeflex conversion class to ensure you get the most out of your products.
We strongly advise that you take the training offered in order to get the best from the products.
Yes, in order to fully understand the treatment and protocols you must attend training. You will be required to produce case studies for evaluation.
