 Professional Licensing for Groomers  

There’s a new reality: an industry that doesn’t organise itself runs the risk that the government will intervene, not necessarily to the advantage of the industry. Professional Licensing is a wide ranging AUDIT of your competency in all aspects of pet grooming, including your ability to produce competent professional pet grooms in a commercial time period. It’s wider ranging than CMG, more commercial that breed clips and includes OHS. The frame-able License is current for 5 years and you do not have to be a member of Pets Australia to apply.

For more information, to sign on or to arrange an audit email petsaustralia@petsaustralia.org or call 02 8214 8653 in business hours (all states).
