Canine First Aid Certificate Course
A more convenient option for those who might struggle to find a day free for our Amtra and CPD Canine First Aid course (via Zoom and our resident Vet Nurse). This Canine First Aid Certificate is entirely self-paced and home study, delivered by email one unit at a time.
A great addition to the knowledge of any canine worker, our canine First Aid Certificate course teaches those who come into close contact with dogs how to deal with emergencies.
You’d like to think that you won’t find yourself into a problem situation with one of the dogs in your care, but accidents happen all the time. Dogs are naturally curious creatures, and it doesn’t take much for one of them to let their enthusiasm get the better of them. You also can’t stop other dogs attacking. The most beneficial thing you can know is how to address the outcomes. From bites and stings to poisoning, right through to giving CPR, our course teaches you everything you need to know in order to be prepared.
Set yourself apart from the competition by making your customers feel that their dog is extra safe in your care. Great for everyone from walkers to sitters, through to those who run training or sporting classes.

How Long Will It Take Me To Complete The Canine First Aid Course?
This really depends upon how much time you can dedicate to your studies, as well as how easily and quickly you grasp the learning concepts. We recommend that students fully digest and understand the course content before submitting their question paper. We encourage students to do their own additional reading and research to reinforce what they have learned. Each unit comes with a question paper which should be completed and returned to the college by email. You should allow between one and two hours to complete each paper.
There is a two year time period within which you can complete the canine first aid course.
This course is open to anyone who works with dogs, or wishes to know more about taking care of their own dog. You do not need any previous canine experience or qualifications to enrol, and you do not need to be a member of any organisations, clubs or governing bodies.
