Before you buy…

This is an eLearning course using our online Learning Management System. You study at your own pace, once you’ve subscribed, logged in and started the course. The course includes some videos streamed via YouTube. You will need Internet access and we recommend taking the course on a PC or Mac. 

We do not recommend taking your assessments on a mobile or tablet. It’s not impossible to do the course on a mobile, it’s just not a totally ideal user interface or learner experience. If you do choose to use a portable device, please ensure you use Google Chrome as your browser and screen save the resulting score for every assessment, just in case technology or your Internet connection loses track of your score. That way you can email your evidence to info@dogbusinessschool.co.uk 

The course is NOT a ‘10 minutes, get safe quick, here’s your certificate, haven’t you done well?!’ fix. 

We believe it’s important to equip pet-care professionals with an essential knowledge foundation, and to ensure we can all operate as safely as possible. Therefore, we have invested a significant amount of time to create a thorough course that is packed with useful, and practical information, and not just for a Covid-19 world.

This course will take a few hours. And the assessments…

Please be aware that regarding Covid-19 we believe working safely is no accident. So, the assessments requires the learner to achieve 100% to achieve a DISTINCTION and 80% to Pass the course. You can take the assessment as many times as you want.

You will have access to the course for 1 year. Major changes to content will be updated. IP addresses are tracked to ensure no fraudulent use.
