Candidates are required to complete one of the prerequisite course’s, as shown on the course page, before enrolling on any of our Higher Certificates.
However, in some cases, you can forego the prerequisite course if you have a minimum of six months quantifiable, related experience working with dogs in dog behaviour, dog training or other qualifications. (Dog ownership is not sufficient).
This will generally be ascertained via a discussion with your Tutor and in some cases evidence will be requested.
If you have any questions, or wish to clarify the above for your individual case, please use our Contact Page in the first instance.
Post Enrolment Information
Once you have enrolled on a course and upon receipt of your payment, your tutor is sent your details by our administration team. They will then arrange for your welcome pack and the first phase of your course to be sent to you via e-mail. Typically speaking, you will receive your course within a couple of days, but we allow 21 days due to tutors’ absence from the office, delivering current workshops (they all also run their own behaviour and training consultancies).
When your tutor makes contact with you, you should then reply via email to state that you have received your pack and understand what is required. If there is anything that you are unsure about or any questions your tutor will be happy to answer them or schedule a call with you.
Although we allow 21 days for course delivery, most courses are dispatched well within 14 days. If you do not receive any communications within this time frame, immediately advise us by using our Contact Form so that we can resolve the matter quickly and get you started on your journey.
All course materials are sent by e-mail in a PDF. This is the most sensible and environmentally conscious way of reducing paper use and course costs. Returned work should be sent in a word document that can be opened and marked by your tutor. Each phase should be sent in one document.
You can commence work as soon as the tutor is advised of your enrolment – this will not affect the final submission date.
If you have any questions, or wish to clarify the above for your individual case, don’t hesitate to contact your course tutor or get in touch with us via our Contact Page.
The procedure outlined here relates to enrolment on all of our courses.
