What is the difference between a UPDATE course and a REVALIDATION?
UPDATE courses allow you to obtain a star. The goal is for you to gain new knowledge and experience in applying the F-Balance® concept.
A REVALIDATION is a simpler update, which allows you to revalidate your personal data in the search engine of our F-Balance® website. The goal is to prove that you are still active in your profession and in the application of the F-Balance® concept.
Can I take an UPDATE course at any training center?
No. You can only take an UPDATE course at an official F-Balance® Academy or in a course taught by Daniel Anz for that purpose.
Do I have to take a theoretical or practical exam?
No. However, if you don't do an adequate practical work, the teacher has the right not to give you the certificate or the star until you prove proper work.
How often can I take an UPDATE course?
You are allowed to do an UPDATE course every 6 months. This gives you a chance to practice between updates.
What happens if I purchase two or more UPDATE courses in a row?
You can purchase all 5 UPDATE courses in a row, but you will only be admitted to one course every 6 months.
Can I combine online and in-person UPDATE courses?
Yes. However, star number 5 must be obtained at an in-person course. This applies even if you have also obtained the previous 4 stars in person.
Can I attend only one day of a course to get up to date?
No. You must attend all the days. We strive to ensure that your level of work meets the quality standards that make you a good F-Balance® podiatrist. For this reason, we want you to make the most of the knowledge offered.
Do I receive a certificate at the end of the REFRESHER courses?
Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion which will be given to you in paper format at the end of the course.
What is the total price of the F-Balance® Update?
47,00 US$ booking fee + the price you have to pay at the beginning of the practical course (you can find the price you have to pay at the school or academy of your choice at the bottom of this page).
Is the payment really secure?
Yes, we work with the payment provider STRIPE which is part of the TEACHABLE platform. The order form is protected by SSL encryption and your data will be handled according to the relevant data protection conditions.
