This course is approved by NASDU for the requirement of pet first aid in their standards. First aid is important to know for your security dog not only to comply with associations and local authorities but also for animal welfare and to help a dog in need. The nature of working with dogs will pose a risk that they may be harmed in the course of their work or transport.
We have designed this course to meet the NASDU learning outcomes and added a few extra modules to ensure full understanding.
This course comes with 4.0 hrs (7.0 class) of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this. Total course time includes 3 hours and 4 minutes of video training as well as knowledge reviews, final test, remedial help and reviewing downloaded material.
