Training & Qualifications

Education has been the cornerstone of the Pet Industry Federation's work since its inception, and members of the Federation are entitled to a discounted rate on all our courses. Our focus when training is understandably on those pet specialist businesses that come into daily contact with the pet-owning public, however, it is equally important for manufacturers to keep up their technical expertise and understanding of good animal husbandry honed.


We offer a range of City & Guilds qualifications in the following subject areas:

Dog Grooming Qualifications

Pet Store Management Qualifications


By going to the relevant qualification, you can also find out details such as the latest examinations dates and how to register for the course.

Please Note - All course & exams are non-refundable

Seminars & Workshops

We have recently extended our training portfolio to become ever-more resopnsive to the needs of businesses. We run a series of seminars and workshops on a variety of subjects during the course of the year. Seminars are also supported by our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme, enabliing professionals already at level 3 in their education to top-up their skills by attending these courses.
