The Pet Industry Federation has launched a new online education portal with a range of courses specifically designed for pet professionals.
The courses include canine first aid, canine health & behaviour; business skills for dog groomers and legislation for dog groomers. The City & Guilds Pet Store Management course will also run through this new education portal.
The competitively-priced courses have been developed by PIF to provide an easy way for people working in the pet industry to undertake a variety of courses in their own time. Other online courses will be added to the portal shortly.
Nigel Baker, PIF’s Chief Executive said: "These courses offer people pet working in the pet industry and with companion animals a quick and convenient way to refresh their knowledge and taken on new information.
'Although some of the courses are not a substitute for undertaking a practical course, these online courses are one way of showing your customers that you have a basic understanding of a range of topics; and fit with PIF’s objectives of raising standards within the pet industry."
The courses are available through ‘PIF Education’ at www.petfederation.co.uk and start at £25 per course. As ever, PIF members get a discount on these courses and members will receive a separate email about the courses with the membership code included.
Alternatively, they can contact PIF customer services on 01234 273933; or email firstname.lastname@example.org for the code.
