City and Guilds Level 3 Certificate in Introductory dog grooming

City & Guilds… The only UK industry recognised dog grooming qualification

For experienced groomers wishing to gain the qualification we can tailor the dog grooming course to your needs and, if all that is required is the assessment (i.e. there is no need for training/ a dog grooming course) then Heavenlyz can deliver the assessment at your workplace providing it meets certain criteria. For more details, please contact us.

The Level 3 Certificate in Introductory Dog Grooming 7763-03 course is a standalone qualification and is separate to the Diploma examination. Although either may be taken first, Heavenlyz recommends that only Dog Groomers with significant experience consider taking the Diploma examination before demonstrating that they have reached the Introductory level.

When you sign up to an accredited training centre to take a dog grooming course you will be given an individual registration number.

Students have three years to complete both Part 1 “The Introductory” dog grooming course and Part 2 “The Diploma” dog grooming course from the date of registration.

Registration is open for the Introductory qualification until 31st August 2017. After this date entry to the qualification is closed but those already registered on it may continue as normal. A new qualification will have been launched by the date above.

Students may decide to stop once they have completed the Introductory level and choose not to go on to the Diploma level.

Theory is part of the Introductory qualification and theory training is offered as part of a Heavenlyz dog grooming course. On successful completion of practical assessment and theory examination an Introductory certificate will be awarded.

Your Heavenlyz dog grooming course will provide you with all practical training opportunities necessary to achieve the qualification, including the following: –

  • Assessment and planning of dog grooming work
  • Dog grooming styling and finishing
  • Promoting/ maintaining the health and well-being of animals
  • Health checking a dog
  • Moving animals between locations

During the Heavenlyz dog grooming course, you will be required to undertake an online multiple choice theory examination. This will be sat under exam conditions at an approved site (normally the same site where the student attends their dog grooming course). There are two multiple choice examination papers, each an hour in length.

Registration for this exam should be done at least 6 weeks prior to examination date, at which point the exam will be scheduled at the earliest available date at the location of the student’s choice.
