This is a great “entry level” course of study for Boarding attendants, grooming assistants and hydrobath operators – or those who want to be. This course will fit you for work in a salon or kennel, and set the groundwork for further study.

Course cost depends on the method of study, but can be as little as $490, including your year’s membership to Pets Australia (GST incl) and includes registration, study guide, mentor throughout the study period, examinations, marking, certificate production. A number of Pets Australia grooming members are also offering the course as a weekend “in house, hands on” seminar for additional cost, which gets you a specially annotated Certificate of Achievement and really top networking and training by those who really “know how to do it”.
