This professional course is designed for dog groomers working in the industry who wish to further improve their skills. You will thrive in the busy atmosphere of a commercial grooming parlour, Distinguished Dogs, which has an excellent reputation and produces award winning groomers. Outstanding support by staff leads to exceptionally high success and an unforgettable learning experience.
Achievement of this qualification demonstrates that you have the necessary skills and professionalism to work within the dog grooming industry or to start your own business.
You will learn everything there is to know about how to be a professional dog groomer, including clipping, hand-stripping, trimming and finishing a range of dog breeds with different coat types to an extremely high standard.
All teaching takes place in the grooming parlour where you will work closely with a lecturer and grooming assistant - both of whom have proven track records within the industry. You will work on dogs provided by customers to a commercial parlour and will occasionally be able to work on your own dogs.
Students are continually assessed throughout the course by tutors and complete mock exam scenarios in preparation for formal assessment. When you have reached the required standard you will sit practical examinations by external examiners. Practical exams at present are held on weekends.
