At Absolutely Animals, we know many experienced cat groomers would like to be able to say they are qualified and have their skills validated. The qualifications are assessed through coursework, which means you can complete the theory work remotely and a portfolio of grooms at your own pace, in your own time, whilst ensuring you have the skills needed to achieve your goal. The formal assessments can be completed remotely, avoiding the need to travel, ensuring the cats’ welfare and taking time out of your salon.
We pride ourselves on providing a great opportunity for experienced cat groomers to achieve Level 3 qualification status without the need to first complete a Level 2 qualification. This route is also ideal for those who hold a dog grooming qualification by iPet Network, City and Guilds or OCN but have diversified into cat grooming and want that recognition.
