Course 1 – The 50 Day Course including The City and Guilds Level 2 and 3
This our most popular course, because it’s over a long enough period to allow the student to not only learn but have enough time to be able to develop the confidence needed to pass exams, and be able to run a business after training.
You will cover all the components of the City and Guilds Level 2 and 3.
The Level 2 covers the skills and subject areas needed for a candidate to be able to perform the tasks of a grooming assistant. You will cover health and safety, handling, health checks, ear, eye and nail care. In addition, you will learn safe coat preparation, bathing, and drying, before moving on to basic clipping skills and how to trim feet and tails.
The Level 3 covers the more advanced grooming and styling skills of advanced clipping, scissoring skills, This course allows you to learn, practice and become competent in the skills required for a commercial dog groomer, including clipping, scissor use and techniques, body, feet, tail and head shapes and styles, hand-stripping, and a whole lot more.
You can expect all your training days to be almost entirely practical and hands-on. In addition to this, there is a comprehensive range of theory study, which is done on an Open Learning basis. This means that you will do this at home, with access to support by telephone, email and through our social media page, although we ask that you exercise consideration when using the telephone option. We will also hold theory workshops in the school, and of course, you can talk through any queries you have about the theory at the end of every training day. Once the Open Learning theory studies are complete, you will have completed a substantial amount of hours, in both practical and the development of underpinning knowledge.
You will also receive the Abbfabb Certificate in Professional Dog Grooming. This option will increase your course to 55 days to include the assessments for Levels 2 and 3.
