Dog Grooming Diploma - Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions answered

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 you will need a PayPal account. If you don’t already have an account, you can set one up easily for free at PayPal.

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 this course is not Nationally Recognised. We are not a Registered Training Organisation and we don’t pretend to be! Vibe Learning chooses courses for what they will teach you, rather than the certificate they will give you. Our courses have been written by real life professionals who are experts in their field. This allows us to share real knowledge and experience with you which is current, relevant and really affordable.

Is the course available 24/7?

Yes, one of the key benefits of studying online is that you can study the course wherever and whenever you want.

How long will it take me to complete the course?

This really depends on how much time you have to apply to it. You can study the course at your own pace, however as a benchmark most of our students complete the course within 6-8 months.

Can I finish the course quicker than 12 months?

YES! If you choose to complete the course full time you can complete the course well within the 12 months. There is a guideline of 300 hours of content included in the course.

Will I need to complete any practical assessments?

There are 12 practical tasks throughout the course which can easily be completed on your own dog, friend’s dogs or by volunteering at rescue centres, shelters and salons. These tasks are optional and do not form part of your overall grade. Although not marked, it is highly recommended that students complete the practical tasks to support their learning. To become a great dog groomer you will need a fundamental understanding of both the theory and practical components.

Do I need to go to a classroom to complete the course?

No, this course is delivered 100% online.

Can I print the course materials?

Yes you will be able to download your lessons and assessments and either print or save them to your computer. This means you can study even when you don’t have internet.

Will I need to buy any equipment or tools to study the course?

There are no tools or equipment that you need to purchase in order to complete this course, however if you take part in the practical tasks you will require a basic grooming kit to complete some of the tasks.

Will I receive a certificate?

Yes. On successful completion of the course you will receive a PDF copy of your certificate via email.  If you would also like a printed copy sent in the mail this can be organised for an additional potage fee.

How can I learn online for such a practical subject?

Whilst Dog Grooming is a highly practical skill any professional groomer will tell you how important it is to have a strong foundation level of theoretical knowledge. As with any job, you need a good understanding of the fundamentals and this is particularly relevant when it comes to grooming and the health and welfare of the dogs you groom.

Can I enrol if I don’t live in Australia?

Yes. Whilst this course is aimed at students who are studying in Australia we see many students from across the globe studying with us.

Can my employer or job network pay for my course for me?

Can I contact my tutor any time?

Yes. You can contact your tutor via email any time. You should expect a response to questions within 24 hours. Assignments are marked within 3 working days, however often we get your marks back to you much quicker.
