The canine training & behaviour industry is growing in Ireland and around the world. However, there is no regulation in the industry meaning that there are no minimum standards in education or experience for professionals, or even most course providers. This makes it very difficult for those wishing to enter or progress in the industry to know where to start.

The TA course is offered by Ireland’s only independent course developer in this professional area – AniEd, and only one of a few around the world. We offer bespoke courses written and delivered to a high standard by qualified and experienced professionals.

The Dog Training Assistant (TA) course aims to provide you with the skills, understanding and knowledge to help you become an excellent canine training assistant, a foundation on which you can build to become a successful professional in this industry.

The TA Specialisation is delivered on a modular basis. You must accumulate the required number of points by completing the appropriate courses to successfully achieve 60 points.

You must collect 40 points via mandatory courses and a further 20 points from electives in no more than 14 months.
