We have recently restructured our training to better suit the needs of our students.
Training is offered on a week-by-week basis so you can train for one week or ten - whatever you feel you will need. Obviously the longer you can devote to your training the more varied and extensive your experience as a groomer will be; for those of you who wish to run your own grooming business we suggest that between four and six weeks should be your minimum attendance giving you plenty of practice of grooming techniques and a variety of breeds to work on.
The aim of the dog grooming business as a whole is that all groomers should become City and Guilds qualified. This does require a great deal of practice in your skill and guidelines suggest that you should be able to plan for your exam after you have approx two years grooming experience. You will then most likely need some further training and advice preparing for your exam. The Grooming Room supports its students aiming for the exam and can offer training for its students when they decide to go for it!
The teaching style at The Grooming Room is predominantly practical, as is the nature of the business itself. From day one you will start practical work with step-by-step instruction.
Student numbers are kept low to ensure you will get all the individual attention you need.
