Theory – Teaching is given in anatomy and physiology. There is a wide subject matter relating to trauma and orthopaedic conditions. This theoretical knowledge is linked to practical patient care. In addition, health and safety, legal aspects, documentation and much more are covered.
Practical – The emphasis is on “hands on” practical sessions and the Courses are kept small in order to provide a very high instructor/student ratio. In this way, participants on the Course can build rapidly on their previous casting room experience. The aim is to perfect existing skills, learn new and alternative methods and be able to discuss and critique work in a constructive way.
What materials are used? – Most cast application techniques are taught in resin-based materials and plaster of Paris. Participants will have experience with a full range of modern materials and will learn how to use their special properties for particular applications.
