WHAT ELSE WILL I HAVE TO DO TO BECOME A CERTIFIED THERAPEUTIC SHOE FITTER?
CFTS is a NATIONAL certification and the scope of practice varies state to state. Verify regulations with your state DME boards. The Shoe fitter course (if 16 hours completed) is approved to meet the 16 hour requirement for training and is ONE STEP to meeting the requirements. Visit www.abcop.org for details.
