Advanced Diploma in Animal Care and Business - Level 3
This advanced course in Animal Care and Business – Level 3 is the perfect course for individuals dreaming of a business in animal care. Starting up a business is no small task, which is why 1Training has taken up the responsibility to guide you on how to set up a business that will successfully thrive within the animal care industry. All you need to enroll in this course is a recognised qualification at Level 2 or above in a related disciple.
To start up a business, it is important you have an idea on the whole industry and what is expected of you. Therefore, this course will first take you through the animal care industry as a whole, along with an insight into the roles, duties and responsibilities of an animal carer. You will then be enlightened on what it takes to build a successful business, from proper planning to the execution.
Next up, this course will get you into terms with the various affordable marketing and promotional techniques to help you market your business both online and offline. You will also be demonstrated on how to build a website for your business to increase your scope and on how to establish a strong reputation to win the trust and loyalty of the customers. By the time you are done with this course, you will be on your way to successfully establish your own business within the animal care industry.
