Santa Clarita, CA (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
Animal Behavior College (ABC) introduces its newest certification: the Animal Behavior College Dog Trainer-Level 2 (ABCDT-L2). The ABCDT-L2 enables dog trainers to further distinguish themselves within the pet industry. Successful completion of the certification exam affirms a dog trainer’s extensive experience and knowledge.
“It is the goal of ABC to recognize and award an ABCDT-L2 designation to all dog trainers who have achieved the experience and knowledge in this profession,” said Steven Appelbaum, founder and CEO of Animal Behavior College. “ABC is serious about education.”
The ABCDT-L2 is offered to all professional dog trainers. Animal Behavior College does not require a trainer to be a graduate of their school in order to take the certification examination. The exam does not endorse one training method over other techniques; instead, it indicates that those who pass the test have a fundamental knowledge of the broad spectrum of dog training techniques and theories.
To qualify for the exam, a trainer must have, at minimum, 5 years of experience as a professional trainer and at least 28 CEUs (continuing education units).
Animal Behavior College, founded in 1998, is a vocational school that specializes in animal-related career training. The school’s unique structure incorporates a distance-learning and hands-on externship-training model. ABC offers courses for certified dog training, pet grooming and veterinary assistants in all 50 states and every Canadian province, making it the largest vocational school of its kind in North America.
