I have taken other Kinesiology taping courses, can I skip FMT Basic and take FMT Advanced?
No. Our FMT Basic Kinesiology Taping Certification lays the foundation for understanding FMT’s approach to kinesiology taping and outlines many of the differences in taping applications vs other courses. There will be new things to learn and other taping applications to ‘unlearn’ before moving onto FMT Advanced. For this reason, we require you to take the FMT Basic course before moving onto the FMT Advanced course.
