FormaHoof Academy FAQs

Created by FormaHoof’s team of equine podiatry experts, the FormaHoof Academy provides all the theoretical knowledge and practical insights needed to help horses overcome a multitude of hoof related issues, with the support of FormaHoof.

The currently available FCA course has been filmed in real-time on actual customer horses, to ensure that the experience is as authentic as possible.

General access is granted to anyone interested in learning more about FormaHoof and the many hoof problems the technology can help to overcome. However, certification for FormaHoof certified Applicators within the FCA course can only be completed and awarded to professionals (farriers, vets, equine podiatrists with proof of business).

Certification for professionals requires passing the theoretical and practical exams after your business has been approved.

The current FCA course is available for a fee of EUR 99 (+VAT).

The cost of purchasing a Starter Kit (or any initial quantity of moulds) is not included in the course or lecture fees.

However, upon successful registration to the course, participants receive a 10% discount code for their next purchase.

Future speciality courses and lectures will have varying fees according to the content of the individual course or lecture.

All available courses are featured in the Academy section of our shop or simply add to cart above, sign up and start your course.

Once enrolled, your course materials are accessible for 2,000 days, so there’s plenty of time to learn and explore modern hoof care developments!

You don’t need a Kit or any FormaHoof product set up to go through the course modules. The course can be purchased as an individual product and will help you to understand the uses and methodology behind our products.

Upon successful registration to the FCA course, participants receive a 10% discount code for their next purchase, which can help you to save on your first product order.

To get the best results for your horse, we strongly recommend that applications are only carried out by professionally trained farriers or vets.

The horse’s hooves require regular trimming before a FormaHoof application, which we highly recommend is carried out by a suitably qualified person.

However, we know that many owners trim their own horses hooves and have seen remarkable results achieved by owners.

By successfully passing the online exam after completing the FCA course, IAPF members can earn 24 IAPF CE credits.

Those IAPF members who have been fully certified by FormaHoof prior to October 15, 2021, will automatically receive credits.

Becoming a Certified Applicator requires your proof of business as either a farrier, trimmer or veterinarian. Please check if your country of residence requires a farrier license to apply e.g. UK.

Certifications are granted to individual natural persons with the required professional skills and proof of business, not to the business itself. A proof of business may be your business registration, certificate of your education, or similar.

The FCA course is based on a combination of video trainings and accompanying, downloadable documents. The FCA course is currently available in English and German, with more languages coming soon.

Just try it again!

You have 5 attempts to complete the theoretical test. We provide support where needed, but all questions are set to be answered with the provided information and material.

The practical exam allows us to review your work and (if needed) give you feedback on anything that might need to be corrected. There is no need to upload your very first application for the certification, just upload when you feel comfortable enough with the process and results.
