    Its really good! Easy to understand and not as hard as I thought it could be, I’m really learning things I didn’t know before! It’s great to be able to go at your own pace and I love the fact I have payment plans in place so its not so tight on my budget 🙂

    this course offers a Diploma in dog grooming as well as covers dog care and pet grooming. I was super thankful and excited for the scissors I received, but they were 1 quality and i found the exact same thing on trade me for $15
    very disappointed as the blades don't even fit together correctly, don't cut hair at all and they just seem to be cheap knock off scissors 🙁 I found it was very hard to find someone to get in contact with apart from pressing the orange help button and waiting for someone to get in contact with me. The person who was supposed to keep in contact with me only called me once at the very start so i was unable to ask her for any more help.But the information was good, and i learnt a lot of things you wouldn't be able to learn through observation and the pet health side of it was amazing!! i learnt a lot about how to identify sick/injured dogs and how to correctly help them.

    My certificate in dog & pet grooming isn’t going too bad, I decided to go online and use an outside book to help me with a particular part that I’m stuck on but if I need further help I’ll definitely ask the tutors.

    I’m a bit disappointed that there’s not a more practical focus, but I’m only about halfway through so I’m hopeful for more practical aspects later on.

    Jenny Sharpe

    I decided to enrol with The Career Academy because I needed a course I could do from home. A bit more on grooming dogs would have been invaluable as that’s the field I wish to take but in saying that I really enjoyed learning about the other aspects of this course and looking forward to doing more studies through you, I would like more info packs on dog grooming courses please. Still excellent overall.
