Do you offer a money back guarentee?
Yes if for any resaon you are not happy with your course, contact us within 5 days of enrolling and you'll receive a full refund - no questions asked!
Can I pay by payment plan?
Yes! We offer two payment options. The best value price is always the upfront option, however we understand that some people prefer to pay the course off in instalments. If you opt for the payment plan this service is provided by our partner EzyPay.
What is the benefit of paying upfront?
The simple answer to this one is that you will pay less! Payment plans cost more because there are administration costs involved, but if you pay upfront you are guaranteed to pay our best value price. The other great thing is that you will get access to all of the modules as soon as you enrol, so can complete the course as fast or slowly as you like. If you pay by payment plan, modules will be unlocked as you pay for the course.
Is it Centrelink approved?
No, the course is not Centrelink approved.
Is there a start date for the course?
There are no start dates for the course, so you can enrol today and start studying immediately.
Is the course Nationally Recognised?
No it’s not nationally recognised. Dog grooming is an unregulated industry, meaning that there isn’t one specific course that ‘qualifies’ you to be a groomer. That’s really why this course came about as whilst you don’t need a formal qualification it is vital to have the correct skills, techniques and knowledge before selling your services as a groomer. The course was developed by a professional groomer with years of experience running her own salon and is mentored by Hannah who runs her own boutique salon.
