    Course material needs to be reviewed – there were various editorial errors throughout. The payment option was ideal for me!

    limited available Grooming courses and I needed to start with something online which would allow me to progress in my own time I felt like it would have been a vast improvement if the use of video had been considered. There was 1x 5 min video at the start and it would have been useful to have some visual accompaniment through out.
    Secondly I felt that the reading references for each lesson were missing. It would have been useful to have one or two examples of the kinds of books references and journals available which may have backed up the course content. Just missing the practical experience which is unavailable unless one can travel and stay in Auckland for good weeks . Unfortunately as a single parent this is out of my depths. Wouldnt it be great if limited practical sessions could be offered in other places in the country for those unavailable to travel for long durations

    this course offers a Diploma in dog grooming as well as covers dog care and pet grooming. I was super thankful and excited for the scissors I received, but they were 1 quality and i found the exact same thing on trade me for $15
    very disappointed as the blades don't even fit together correctly, don't cut hair at all and they just seem to be cheap knock off scissors 🙁 I found it was very hard to find someone to get in contact with apart from pressing the orange help button and waiting for someone to get in contact with me. The person who was supposed to keep in contact with me only called me once at the very start so i was unable to ask her for any more help.But the information was good, and i learnt a lot of things you wouldn't be able to learn through observation and the pet health side of it was amazing!! i learnt a lot about how to identify sick/injured dogs and how to correctly help them.

    My certificate in dog & pet grooming isn’t going too bad, I decided to go online and use an outside book to help me with a particular part that I’m stuck on but if I need further help I’ll definitely ask the tutors.

    I’m a bit disappointed that there’s not a more practical focus, but I’m only about halfway through so I’m hopeful for more practical aspects later on.

    I decided to enrol with The Career Academy because I needed a course I could do from home. A bit more on grooming dogs would have been invaluable as that’s the field I wish to take but in saying that I really enjoyed learning about the other aspects of this course and looking forward to doing more studies through you, I would like more info packs on dog grooming courses please. Still excellent overall.
