Melbourne Dog Training Short Course

  • dog trainer short course 

    Hanrob Dog Training Academy (RTO no 70236) has developed the Dog Trainer Short Course, which is made up of three units of competency from the ACM40310 Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services qualification.  It is designed to allow flexibility in the work placement component.

    Our Dog Trainer Short Course has been customised to introduce students to the dog training profession. Students will learn the theory behind dog psychology, behaviour modification and dog training principles during the eight weeks of part time face-to-face delivery.


    Work Placement

    Whilst undertaking this course you will be required to have access to an external facility to undertake practical hours/work experience, under the supervision of a dog training mentor.

    This will allow you to practice what you have learnt on course and increase your experience working with others in this field. It is highly recommended that you organise your external facility prior to course commencement.

    You are covered by insurance during this practical component of the course.
