Dog Grooming Courses and Dates - 2020scroll  down to bottom of page for dates 

We concentrate on one thing only - to train you to be a good enough groomer to start your own grooming business if that is your goal - or to seek employment as a trained and skilled groomer. Well structured grooming courses must cover a vast amount of new skills - and some necessary theory and knowledge of common animal health problems.  For those who wish to add qualifications to their training course we can offer you a choice of both City & Guilds and OCN (Open College Network) recognised qualifications. For those who wish to train to groom commercially now - and think about qualifications later - we have our long standing and ever popular Groom For a Living course which ticks all of the boxes to get you up and running in your own business - or perhaps renting a table in an established salon.    

After 22 years in the industry - 14 years of training courses - and now a City & Guilds and OCN approved satellite training centre - we are the leading training centre in East Anglia. Check out our Testimonials from past students over  the years.
