Whether you own your own dog, are working with dogs or simply want to gain a new skill this online Dog Grooming course will give you all the knowledge you need to effectively understand and deliver dog grooming. Dog grooming has changed significantly in recent years and salons are no longer restricted to show dogs or dogs that require significant clipping. Nowadays nearly every breed of dog can be found in a grooming salon with many of them being regular clients. Even dogs with very short coats visit to have their nails clipped, their ears cleaned or to have a basic bath and dry!

  • Introduction
  • Supplies and Equipment
  • Safety Procedures

Excellent Value for Money
4 5
by michelle - April 2017

I thought it was great. Have always wanted to get into therapy but had no idea on where to start. I booked this course just for some insight into the field. When I ordered I was emailed really quickly by their team and my account was set up. I worked my way through the chapter readings, finished in about 4 months all in all. Took another month to get ready for the test, and passed! They sent my certificate the next afternoon. Overall a really good experience with them.

Criminology (Booked online with Hotcourses)
by Sarah - July 2016

I am starting my Criminology Degree this September after completing a Psychology Access Course. Most of the other students in my new cohort would have previously studied something more crime-based, so decided to do a few relevant courses throughout the summer so I'm not completely out of my depth with all the others! This course is well laid out and informative, giving the history of criminal theories to the modern day justice system. It is thought provoking and takes into consideration social factors etc, that perhaps you wouldn't normally associate with crime. At the end of each module is a mini test which helps you gauge how much you have absorbed. Each module is around 60 pages long on a power point style slide. The information per page is quite concise and so doesn't overload you too much all at once. I have since completed a Forensic course with Oplex and have now signed up for their Advanced Criminology course, as well as recommending to friends and family who have also signed up for courses in their lines of work, study and interest. Look out for offers given to their existing students also, as the discounts are really good.
