BDGA calls on pet groomers to complete survey on City & Guilds qualification
The British Dog Groomers’ Association (BDGA) is calling on dog groomers who have done their City & Guilds 7763 Level 3 Introductory Certificate to complete a short survey about whether or not they would like to complete the full City & Guilds 7763 Level 3 Diploma.

With the current City & Guilds Level 3 7763 being replaced with the new 7863 Diploma in Dog Grooming, the BDGA is concerned that there may be groomers who have only undertaken the 7763 Introductory Certificate and can't find a location to do the second part i.e. the Level 3 Diploma exam.

This BDGA survey aims to determine whether there are groomers who want to undertake the Diploma and to find out where they are located, so that BDGA can find suitable centres to hold the practical Diploma exams.

Groomers don’t need to have taken their 7763 Introductory Certificate with PIF/ BDGA to answer the survey; nor do they have to be BDGA members. The BDGA simply wants to get as many groomers fully qualified to Diploma level, before the opportunity of re-registration for the 7763 closes next year. This survey to ascertain demand and most suitable locations is a vital first step to helping pet groomers complete their City & Guilds 7763 qualification journey.

Completing the survey takes just a couple of minutes. Please visit:

The deadline for completing this survey is 1 October 2016.
