First Aid and CPR for Pets Online Course - £24.95 + VAT

When people think of first aid they often don't think about their pets. However pets can have accidents the same as humans, and knowing what to do should the worst happen is a simple thing to learn with basic training. We highly recommend that all responsible pet owners take this course.

Pet first aid is not aimed to replace veterinary care, but it will help you to recognise an emergency, calm your pet and reduce the risks of delayed treatment. Learning pet first aid is fun and informative and will give you the skills to deal with a pet emergency should it arise. This course is taken online using video based learning and is ideal for pet owners or pet professionals. It covers the main first aid subjects for dogs and cats, but this information is also suitable for most other animals. Understanding basic first aid for your pet will give you the skills to assist them and prevent them from getting worse before professional help is given by your vet.  This qualification is also available with an Endorsed Certificate from TQUK, for an extra charge if required. 

With this online course you will be able to view the videos for 8 months to keep you up to date with your skills and to see new videos as we add them.  All students will receive a free login area to the website where you can download a free student manual, print off a certified CPD statement and access other material. Online students can print off their certificate online on completion.
