The Medinail Learning Center (MLC) was founded by nail industry and foot care specialist Robert Spalding, DPM, a professional committed to the advancement and empowerment of his profession. (For more about his background, see Faculty.)

MLC’s goals are to develop mastery of knowledge and skills, to promote safe delivery of effective services, and to establish collaborative partnering with the medical and other communities.

Medinail Learning Center provides courses for Four groups of foot care professionals: Nail Technicians, Podiatry Assistants, Medical Assistants and Foot Care Nurses.

Nail Technicians! The nail technician courses on medinails.com are designed especially for the licensed nail professional who is seeking to attain a higher level of success by transitioning into exciting new levels of care.

These courses enhance the knowledge and skills of nail technicians in addition to adding potentials for expansion of their success and career possibilities. Incorporating this information into their business brings nail technicians to a new and higher level of expertise and success in their profession, a level never before achieved.

Two courses are available for Nail Technicians:

…………………………………………………………

Podiatric Assistants! Few structured courses are available for Podiatry Assistants and many podiatrists and assistants have requested a Certification course that provides a solid basis of practical information for working assistants.

…………………………………………………………

Medical Assistants! The Clinical Podiatry Medical Assistant Program is available to Medical Assistants who wish to expand their current information to include foot care knowledge. Medical Assistants tell us that their prior training “stops at the ankles” and that this program provides the information they need to successfully work more effectively in long term care, podiatry offices and clinics. This program is credentialed by the American College of Medical Foot Care and Esthetics (ACMFCE.org), a national educational association of podiatrists, allied health professionals and MediNail Learning Center (MLC)s.
