Amy Brook - Lincolshire

I would recommend this course to anyone

The course is really easy to access and the content is simple but contains everything that is needed. All the information is relevant and the modules are broken down into chunks to allow for easy working sessions. There are highlighted areas which are the most important parts that you should know! Overall I would recommend this course to anyone who is considering a career in the animal industry.

Kate Baxter - Stafford

Very interesting and informative

I have really enjoyed doing this course. I have found it very interesting and informative and would recommend it to anyone who is simply interested in pet psychology or someone wanting to take this on as a full-time career.

It is great for anyone who wants to train their new pets or understand their pets and their behaviours more. The website is very simple and easy to use and the staff have been very polite and helpful and responded in a timely manner. It has also been great being able to learn at my own pace and doing the course a little bit at a time.

Silvia Esther Basik – Askelon

Marvellous experience, and the help of the staff through email were great!

Excellent course that not only gives me the elements to know about my interest but helps me to refresh my previous knowledge about it and about all that is related to. I feel prepared to continue studying at the end of it, and I now work with animals as a volunteer.

I am happy to recommend to every person that wants to continue studying or would simply like to know more about pets. I don’t have much time to go to a class or can’t because of work.

Marvellous experience, and the help of the staff through email were great!

Sarah Robinson – Northampton

I’m really enjoying this course so far, and can’t wait to do the next one.

I’ve been searching for courses based around animals for a long time. Finally found a provider that has a lot of courses in this area. I’m really enjoying this course so far, and can’t wait to do the next one.

The course is very easy to follow, with highlighted text so that you can remember the important parts of each module and the fact you can learn at your own speed and access the course for life is great. I am a very busy working mum, and I can now fit my learning around my other commitments in my life.

Bring on future learning!
