Course Delivery

The course program is taught using a blended approach (online & classroom).

The theory (knowledge) is taught and assessed via our online learning platform. This allows students to start study at anytime and learn the required knowledge prior to attending the academy for the practical training.

The practical training (hands-on) is completed at the academy under the guidance and support of our qualified teachers and groomers for 1 week full time. This ensures the student is taught the hands-on skills required to become a bather/brusher while being guided by our team. During the practical training, students have access to a range of dog breeds to wash and dry and are able to practice and perfect their skills in a safe environment.

On successful completion of the course, students will receive a Statement of Attainment from the Certificate III Animal care Services - Pet Grooming (ACM30121) qualification showing the units that the student completed.
