Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services

The Delta Society operates a nationally recognised vocational training course which satisfies the training.gov.au requirements to issue a Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services, which is part of the Animal Care and Management training package.

Delta was the first training organisation in Australia to offer a nationally accredited course in this field and our course still leads the way.

The full course teaches scientifically proven, 100% positive, reward-based training techniques  and is a structured, competency based program involving over 600 hours of practical and written assignments conducted by face to face classes and distance education. Students have full access to the teaching staff throughout the duration of the course.

It is unique in its scope and its structure and is designed to produce graduates who can design, conduct and evaluate puppy and adult dog training classes, and one on one behavioural consultations for dog owners.

The Certificate IV course should take approximately two-and-a-half years to complete (for students enrolled in the first intake - April) and slightly less for students in the second intake (September).

Those who wish to complete the whole course must be prepared to dedicate at least seven hours per week to completing written or practical assessments.

To be able to complete the Certificate IV you must attend a seminar, successfully complete the Socially Responsible Companion Animal Ownership and Introduction to Training Class Management components before you can enrol in the Certificate IV course.
