Professional Qualification Courses
At IACC we offer 2 Ofqual Regulated Qualifications alongside our training courses to enable those starting their career to gain Professionally Qualified and Certified Dog Grooming status:
The OCNNI (Open College Network NI) Level 3 Diploma and The OCNNI (Open College Network NI) Level 3 Certificate
The difference in the 2 qualifications is the length of training and modules studied the Diploma is a longer course and covers all breed dog grooming and techniques and includes handstripping, scissoring, business and salon management and pet first-aid and cpcr were as the Certificate covers just covers Popular basic dog grooming clipping techniques and salon management.
For those aspiring to work as a commercial groomer or to run their own business we would highly recommend the Diploma training course and qualification to enable you to competently groom all breeds and have the knowledge and understanding to care for canines within your care as well as business & management skills.
