Course description

Pet Nutrition Diploma

The pet nutrition course will provide you with valuable insight into ensuring your pet or your clients' beloved pets are fed the right diet to meet their unique growth needs. Our course is broken down into easy to study and manageable modules, which you can study online at your own pace and in your own time. All the modules are easily accessible online using any device, which enables you to study from anywhere. On completion, you will be required to complete a multiple-choice test, which you must pass in order to receive your industry-recognised certification. In the event that you don't pass the first time, you will be given a second chance to go over the modules and complete the test again. On successful completion, you can download and print your certificate right there and then without delay, or you can request that it is posted to you, which will incur a small additional cost.
