The nine-module course requires only the internet, allowing it to be completed in the comfort of students' own rooms any time they wish. It aims to give budding pet care workers a helping hand into the industry by providing them a thorough study of the grooming process, it's techniques, and their application to all shaggy coats from the soft curls of the poodle to the thick wiry fur of the border terrier. Students will learn each breed's temperaments and the tools needed to groom them, as well as advice on setting their own business. All of the course can be accessed at once, giving students an outline of the whole process from day one and allowing them to spend more time on sections they prefer.
