Professional Progression Acadamy
The Professional Progression Acadamy is the brain child of Doggrooming.ie tutors Karina & Jenny. We are always looking at ways of helping and encouraging our students to progress on their career pathway. Entering grooming competitions or working through qualifications is an ideal way to keep refreshing skills and technique's that can easily become dull in the daily work in the salon. Either of these steps can seem quite daunting so we were thinking why not have a workshop within the competition environment as a stepping stone - so the PPA came about.
We had our first offical event at the IPDGA Championships 2015 - we invited groomers to particapate in a workshop that ran along side the Clipped Class on the sunday morning. It was a great success with plenty of helpful feedback on hand for the participants who each had their own goals to achieve from the day. We look forward to repeating this workshop at the 2016 IPDGA Championships.
We plan to host some further workshops and are also availabile on a consultancy bases to help with anything that can arise whilst operating a salon from time managment to growing a steady clientle or grooming skills related help. We have added an online platform, it features the Canine First Responder Course. Now you can complete 95% of this course in the comfort of your own home, in your own time. A short practical skills attendance is required in order to comply with Certification Protocols, this can be booked once all the online sections are completed.
