    I wanted to do a Dog Grooming Course, and this course with The Career Academy was the only one I could find that provided a great course for a reasonable price.

    Jenny Sharpe

    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. Excellent overall.
