Fee: £135 per module.
The level 6 Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour course is for students who have already successfully completed at least a level 4 course in dog behaviour, whether with the ISCP or with another recognised, reputable education provider.
We will need to see a copy of your current qualifications when you enrol on this course. The Advanced Diploma course explains the theories that underlie behaviour and offers students the knowledge and skills to put these theories into practice in their work with dogs and their caregivers.
The modules include links to private discussions with eminent scientists which were recorded specifically for this course. Also included are links to papers, videos and webinars that will further deepen understanding. Denise O’Moore designed graphics exclusively for this course.
The course involves around 360 hours of study and the time limit for completion is 2 years from the date of enrolment. On successful completion of the full course, graduates can use the title Advanced Canine Behaviour Practitioner.
