FGA L2 is the course you’ve been waiting for

If you’re a certified FGA Level 1 clinician we trust that your foot and gait assessment skills are on point. The best clinicians are the ones that can nail down the assessment and dial in on what is most needed for their clients.

BUT, once you figure out the “why,” you’ve got to know how to guide your clients to their best outcomes. This is where Level 2 comes in–it’s time for treatment! We have designed a 2-day, 16-hour course on how to TREAT the client.

You have figured out the WHY, now figure out the HOW.

This course is for Level 1 Functional Gait Specialist Certified Pros ONLY.

Student to instructor ratio: 20:1

FGA Level 2 is everything you need to take your work with clients to the next level.

You’ll learn to hit ALL the buckets when it comes to treatment.
