Won't I miss out on the social side of learning?

This online course has been written and developed by a professional dog groomer who ran her own successful mobile dog grooming business for many years.  Her goal when writing the course was to impart her knowledge onto her students, offering you, her student the chance to pursue your dreams of starting a business just as she did.  Each module includes real-life skills rather than just theory, which will be essential for you to apply to your business.  With a consistent 5 star rating and so many success stories, this Diploma comes highly recommended by previous students, check out some reviews.


I have been really impressed with everything Vibe Learning has to offer.  The modules are really well written making them enjoyable to read and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend Vibe Learning - the whole experience has been great!

I wanted to pass on a HUGE thank you to my tutor who marked each of my assessments.  Her feedback was always so encouraging and her kind words helped me to stay focused and inspired me to continue to put my all into each of the assessments.  I have done quite a few courses over the years and have never received such wonderful feedback.  Most markers either don't bother giving feedback or if they do, it is just a couple words such as "well done".  When you put so much into an assessment it is so nice to receive feedback such as Wendy's.

How will I gain practical experience?

If you're starting to wonder how you will gain practical experience when studying an online course, wonder no more!  During the course you’ll have the chance to groom a variety of different dogs. There is no need to find a formal placement, instead you can groom your own or friends' dogs, or reach out to your local community or animal shelter. After all, it’s never too hard to find people happy to accept free grooms.  More often than not, those clients then go on to become loyal paying customers at your new business! If you get stuck for ideas, you'll find lots of suggestions from previous students in the Faceboook group.  Head over to our practical experience page to learn more.

When it comes to purchasing equipment, we don't recommend buying anything before commencing your studies.  The first module will give you lots of information to help decide what you might need, dependant on the type of business you plan to set up.  Don't worry though, you won't need to spend lots of money on expensive equpment in order to complete your practicals, a basic kit is all that's required.  Studying with us also gets you a trade discount with Clipper World, just one of the many benefits of this Diploma!
