Do you want to further your knowledge and professional understanding by distance learning in a range of specialised subjects, including canine and feline behaviour and training, the study of animal psychology and the science of animal behaviour?
COAPE offers a number of courses specially tailored to introduce you to the study, practice and applications of dog and cat behaviour work, or to help you develop your professional understanding and advance your existing career in the companion animal field.
A number of our courses can lead to Regulated Qualifications. Students whose assessments reach the required standards will be awarded a Regulated Qualification through CERTA. These qualifications are listed on the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) and regulated by Ofqual, the official Government regulator of qualifications, examinations and assessment in England and of vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland
These courses are written and assessed by COAPE tutors as an introduction to the study of companion animal behaviour, both for students who wish to progress onto formally accredited and regulated courses later and/or for existing professionals and pet owners to improve their knowledge and understanding of pet behaviour. These courses come packed with COAPE's full expertise in tutoring and assessment procedures to ensure that students enjoy the learning process and achieve their full potential.
