Certificate III in Pet Grooming

National ID: ACM30612 | State ID: J361

 

This course will provide you with comprehensive training in all aspects of pet grooming services. A pet grooming attendant undertakes salon reception and housekeeping duties as well as bathing, brushing, trimming and other grooming services for domestic pets, usually dogs and in some cases cats. You will learn patience and a genuine empathy for animals, excellent customer service skills as well as high standards of cleanliness and professionalism.

In addition to specific pet grooming skills, you will learn how to contribute to workplace health and safety processes, complete animal care hygiene routines, comply with infection control policies and procedures, work effectively in the companion animal industry and provide basic first aid for animals. This course builds a strong foundation for future employment in pet retail shops, pet grooming salons, pet boarding facilities, animal rescue centres, animal training facilities and veterinary clinics. With experience, you may go on to owning and operating your own pet grooming business.

It is highly recommended that whilst undertaking this qualification, the individual has access to a workplace that provides pet grooming services through either paid employment or substantial periods of work placement or work experience blocks.

Applicants must have empathy for animals and possess the communication skills and physical ability to successfully perform work placement in the pet grooming industry.
