Which level is right for me?
You have little or no knowledge or working in the dog grooming industry and want to learn the skills you need to work under supervision in a dog grooming salon.
You've worked in the dog grooming industry for some time - you have plenty of experience. You want to develop your skills further, learn how to style different breeds of dog and perhaps to move into a management role.
