What are the C&G dog groomer qualifications?
A City & Guilds certificate is an internationally recognised qualification that gives employers and clients reassurance that the holder has reached and demonstrated a standard of professional competence measured across the industry. The Grooming Academy is a direct City & Guilds Approved Teaching, Assessment and Examination Centre for all of the dog grooming courses.
The City & Guilds Certificate for Dog Grooming Assistants (level 2) gives you the basic skills you need to start working in dog grooming. You could go on to do the Certificate in Introductory Dog Grooming (level 3) or the Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists (level 3 professional). You will learn about different grooming and styling techniques, health and safety, and working with people and animals.
Who are the C&G qualifications for?
A Certificate for Dog Grooming Assistants is for anyone who wants to work in the dog grooming industry and work their way up. You don't need any previous experience or qualifications to take this qualification. The Certificate in Introductory Dog Grooming or the Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists is suitable for those who have experience of working in the dog grooming industry or have completed a related qualification.
Why choose a City & Guilds course?
A City & Guilds qualification is recognition that you have the right skills to do your job well - which is why so many employers look for people who have one. You can be confident your qualification is recognised internationally and well respected within your industry. We are seeing increased awareness by owners of groomed breeds of dogs that the C&G qualifications are becoming a recognised symbol of a qualified and professional dog groomer.
Why choose The Grooming Academy @ Fir Tree for your City & Guilds course?
We are one of the UK's leading centres for dog grooming training courses. The Academy @ Fir Tree is a direct City & Guilds Approved Training, Assessment and Examination Centre - meaning that we are monitored directly by City & Guilds, with qualified staff and facilities enable our students to undertake all C&G assessments and examinations for their courses within our own centre. We are not a 'satellite centre' for the teaching of City & Guilds courses, operating under the direction and conditions of a separate main centre, nor do our students need to track across the country (often taking 3 or 4 dogs for grooming with them) to third-party sites to undertake examinations. As a City & Guilds Approved Teaching and Examination Centre you can be assured of the dedicated, professional training that you will receive throughout your course from our qualified and experienced teaching staff.
Students wishing to follow a career in the dog grooming industry will find that our Dog Stylist Diploma Course will provide the practical aspects of the initial C&G level 2 qualification, along with a wider knowledge of practical grooming and styling application across a wide range of groomed breeds of dogs.
