As you know, my latest studying I will be doing over the coming months is, “Dog Walking and Pet Home Sitting Course,” with Stonebridge College. I thought I’d talk about my course a little bit more in its own post, although I’m sure I will share my study experience in some way as I progress through this course in the coming months.
This course has 13 assignments and a final examination at the end.
My course contents:
Assignment one: Safety, Health and Hygiene
Assignment two: Getting Started Running Your Pet Care Business
Assignment three: Pet Sitting Basics
Assignment four: Pre-Service Visit
Assignment five: Dog Walking
Assignment six: First Aid
Assignment eight: Dogs and Cats
Assignment nine: Birds
Assignment ten: Fish
Assignment eleven: Reptiles
Assignment twelve: Hamsters, Gerbils, Rats and Mice
Assignment thirteen: Rabbits and Guinea pigs
There will be certificates at the end; a diploma from Stonebridge College and a level 4 certificate from ABC. (I previously said Level 3 in a comment on a post, but now corrected as it is level 4 due to reading my notes wrong about this course and another I plan to do later.)
Like my courses I have done elsewhere, you receive the first two assignments and question paper for the first assignment. When you have posted off your first assignment, you read the second one. When your first assignment is marked and you receive feedback on it, they also include question paper for assignment two and assignment three booklet and this is how it continues through the course so you can continue working while the previous is being marked and awaiting for results of that one and next question paper.
For my course, it is recommended I build up my own scrapbook, hence another folder in my photo. This is so I can paste cuttings discovered from my readings and keep building it as my knowledge and interest grows, creating a new set of data.
I hope you have enjoyed knowing a bit more about my new course and thank you for showing interest.
