What qualifications do I need to take this course?

Many students have some experience of working in a salon and may have a level 2 qualification. This is not prerequisite however, and the course is suitable for students who are at least 16 years old with little or no dog grooming experience. The course is very practical and hands on, so students must be comfortable working closely with all breeds and sizes of dogs.

What can I expect during the course?

The course runs for 30 days, Monday to Friday, and typical hours are 9:00 to 4:30. While we encourage students to attend in person as often as possible, some students choose to spend some of the 30 days as home study days. Most days are a combination of theory and practical training. Practical training is done with real dogs, and we encourage students to be hands on. Students will groom at least 20 dogs including a minimum of 10 different breeds, covering at least 6 different coat types. Skills such as prepping, bathing, scissoring, clipping, styling, and nail trimming will be covered. Uniquely, students are continually assessed via practical demonstration and coursework. There is no requirement to sit a formal exam in order to achieve the qualification. This holistic approach has been welcomed by students.
