Level 3 Professional Dog Training Instructor Courses

These courses are for all instructors within the obedience disciplines training puppies or adult dogs. So if you’re a club trainer, a puppy school trainer or a professional dog trainer, old or new, our courses will formalise your experience with a nationally recognised body.

A level three course is a higher level and contains two parts – part one is sent to you by email in a PDF and when complete must be returned to your tutor for marking. Upon successful completion, your work will be returned to you marked with pertinent comments or questions. Thereafter, part two will be sent. Once this is returned and marked, your certificate will be dispatched.
