There are four levels of Authorized SURE FOOT Practitioners. Along with the authorizations for the preceding level, each HOOF requires additional training.
Some of the key requirements for each level are listed in this document. Please note that this is not a complete list. A Demonstration of Proficiency document will be sent to applicants upon acceptance of the application.
The SURE FOOT Practitioner Roadmap outlines the process and expectations for the SURE FOOT Applicant. It includes the guidelines for 1 HOOF through 4 HOOF Levels. Upon authorization the SURE FOOT Practitioner will have access to the SURE FOOT Code of Conduct, SURE FOOT Marketing Policies and SURE FOOT Branding Assets.
The process of becoming a SURE FOOT 1 HOOF Practitioner or achieving the next level can take anywhere from 3 to 12 months. There is a limit of 12 months from the time an Applicant attends a SURE FOOT Workshop to complete the required Case Studies.
