    I am hoping someone can provide me with some advice I am looking to complete a course in Foot Health to qualify as a Podiatry Assistant / Non-surgical foot care specialist so I can work either privately or in a private practice, I would like to know if I complete either of these courses below does this enable me to carry out this kind of work either privately by self once insured etc or to be able to work alongside a qualified podiatrist in a practice. The two courses I am looking into are;

    The SMAE Institute this is an approx 12 month course with modules each month along with a 2 week practical course
    At the end of the course I will be awarded a Diploma in Foot Health I have eligibility for membership of the college of foot health professionals and would be able to use MCFHP & MAFHP after my name.


    BSY Group with modules per month along with a 2 day practical course
    At the end of the course I will be awarded the BSY Diploma and entitled to us the letters BSYA (Non surgical footcare) after my name they also offer professional indemnity insurance so I can start working.

    What I would like to know is if I did complete either course does this enable me start working privately for myself and to also work in a private practice alongside a qualified podiatrist?

    Any help or info would be much appreciated.

    Thank you
