Becoming a Pedorthist
Share |


How can I become a Pedorthist?

First, pedorthists-in-training take courses on footwear fitting, lower extremity orthotic design, manufacture and materials, shoe construction and modification, and patient and practice management. Upon completion of their coursework, they are required to complete 1,000 hours of practical experience. The final stage is taking the ABC or BOC examination. For more information about the examinations, visit the ABC Web site, the BOC Web site or PFA's Learning Management System.
