CERTIFICATE IV IN PET STYLING

National ID: ACM40612 | State ID: J362

 

This qualification is for persons who are engaged or employed to provide pet stylist services. An experienced pet stylist will know the styling standards for different breeds, understand small animal anatomy and be able to identify pet hygiene issues that may indicate a health concern. In addition to patience and a genuine empathy for animals, a pet stylist must maintain high standards of cleanliness and professionalism. Excellent customer service skills are required and stylists who own or manage a salon will also require good business management and organisational skills. Dogs may be the animal to most commonly visit a stylist, but stylists should be prepared to care for cats and other pets.

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.
