A cat grooming qualification is available through the Pet Industry Federation.
The qualification has been developed in response to an increased demand for the service from pet owners, and aims to give groomers the confidence to offer cat grooming as a service in their salons. Whilst many groomers are highly adept at grooming dogs, the needs of cats in a salon environment are very different, and this certificate addresses those differences and develops candidates into proficient cat groomers.
The Certificate of Competence in Cat Grooming comprises six units, which include handling, cat breeds and behaviour, and cat diseases as well as techniques and routines for cat grooming and managing the health and welfare of cats in the grooming salon.
