We can never predict when and where a pet emergency will happen. As such, we want to be prepared to handle the situation in the most educated capacity possible. Not only does training help us handle an emergency, but it allows us to view possible hazards and dangers to help prevent possible situations from ever happening to begin with. This prevention can save thousands in emergency visits and can save the life of your beloved pet.
We always recommend that your entire staff gets trained in Pet CPR and First Aid as you never can guess who will be present when an emergency happens. This allows you to have a trained employee that can render aid immediately. We understand with a large number of staff in your facility, this can be difficult to do, especially with turnover. Because of this, we suggest that a facility should also send someone to become certified as a PetTech® Instructor. They can always keep their staff trained and current as well as offering educational classes for other pet professionals and new and current clients!
Depending on which program you take, some topics may or may not be covered. Our programs cover senior care, dental health and hygiene, pet CPR and first aid, choking protocols, heat & cold injuries, poisoning, seizures, insect bites & stings, snakebites and many other topics!
A Pet Tech® Instructor is someone who is certified by our Pet Tech® Master Instructor to train others in Pet Tech®’s Pet CPR and First Aid courses. This can be a great way for facilities to save money as they won’t need to pay for another instructor to come into their facility or send employees to another location for training. This also allows for new hires to be quickly certified after on boarding, minimizing the gap between hiring and training.
This also provides another revenue stream to your business and for your instructor as they can train other facilities, groups, businesses, and the public in classes exposing your facility or business to potential new clients every class!

Yes! We include not only a Wallet Card for proof of training, but most importantly, a beautiful signed professional certificate that you can frame in your office or facility. We also laminate these certificates so that they don’t become damaged before being displayed!
