Groomer Technician Diploma Certification

Looking to begin your career in the grooming industry? Our groomer technician course will equip you with the entry level skills to commence achievement of your career goals.

In our opinion, a groomer technician is one of the most valuable components to a busy, successful grooming salon. Certification is optimum to achieve the highest, most professional level of grooming care.

So, what exactly is a certified groomer technician?

In short, a certified groomer technician is the backbone of any high performance grooming salon, and sets the solid foundation for finish grooming and styling. A qualified groomer technician will be able to accomplish to perfection all pre-bath duties, some post bath duties, and some simple grooms, as well.

Once you achieve your goals as a certified groomer technician, you can choose to remain at that foundation level, or continue on to become a diploma certified professional groomer, whenever you are ready. Our diploma certification course is available to our certified groomer technicians for a fraction of the full diploma cost.
