Heiniger Academy offers distance learning Nationally Accredited courses and modules in the animal care and grooming industries. We work in conjunction with renowned grooming academies Australia wide who ensure that students get the practical hands on training while we add value through the technical theory side of our courses. The practical course is generally a 5 week intensive course during which you’ll be assessed by a Heiniger Academy assessor to ensure you meet compliance with the course requirements.

How Our Courses Work

Our distance learning course works in conjunction with one of our partner training centres who will provide the practical training to help you to succeed in the pet grooming industry. You will need to choose one of our centres and contact them directly to enrol on your practical course. Heiniger Academy will provide your course literature and you will be assessed while you complete your practical training to ensure you meet the assessment criteria for the qualification. Once you enrol you will have 12 months from the date of enrolment to complete the course. You will be allocated a Student Liaison who will assist with any queries you have and provide support as you go on your learning journey.
