Course Description

What else to expect?

The course should take 240 to 360 hours to study and complete assignments from start to finish. This time does not include the time you will take to practice and develop your skills before you complete an assignment.

Here is what one of our many graduates have said:

"Yes! I am so happy I found Groomadog! I feel like I was given everything I needed to be successful. I could not have asked for a better correspondence course. I was working at a bank for years and realized I was so unhappy. I’m so happy I made the choice to change my career, and now I am happy I chose Groomadog. Kathy is experienced, knowledgeable, and a great teacher! I wish I could have participated in the in-person course! Thank you so much. Kiley Morris
