This course is most suited for those who already have some grooming experience.  There is no need to hold any previous qualifications in order to undertake the Diploma. For those new to the industry the OCN West Midlands Level 3 Certificate in Dog Grooming is more suitable than the Diploma.

There is a practical assessment only at the end of the course.  Students are required to provide evidence for the bathing, drying and grooming of 9 different breeds – to include 15 different styles.  One further dog will be required to be groomed under  assessment conditions.  

The course covers the following:-

– Welcome, receive and care for customers
