Once you enroll, we send you a letter of acceptance, a receipt for your tuition, and immediately mail you a copy of both the adult and the children's manual to familiarize yourself with.
We also send you a link to the CHC Trainers portal, where you will set up your own unique login and password. Here you will find the PowerPoint course presentation, video demonstrations of all the scenarios your future students will participate in, course outlines, as well as a jpegs of the company logo for you to use, marketing photos, marketing videos, waiver forms, hosting agreements and more.
You will also find the area where you can not only post your future courses, but order all your training manuals/certificates for your students.
We also invite all accepted trainers to join our closed Facebook group, CHC Trainers. Here you can collaborate and refer with other trainers all over North America.
Once you are comfortable with the manual, PowerPoint and video demonstrations, you will be sent a link to the Trainers exam. You will need a 75% to pass. If you fail, you must wait one week to re-take the exam.
When you pass your exam, we sent you your trainer T-shirt, medium sized demo dog and list you on our website as a licensed Canine First Aid Trainer.
The course can be completed in about 40 hours. We also encourage Trainers to run a practice course before they teach their first public one.
We don't put a time limit on your training. We know life can get in the way and sometimes you need to put things on the back burner in the name of health and family. We get it.
Of course! We allow flexibility with our Trainers. You can teach using your dog(s), the demo dogs, the student dogs (temperament approved- of course) or any combination thereof. We trust our Trainers as professionals to put on the best class possible, based on the specific needs of the group they will be working with.
Yes, you can claim your training as a business expense on your income tax return. Our Trainers enjoy a gross profit of $100 per student taught, so 10 students = $1000. You earn your tuition back quickly.
We have an exceptional group of people at Head Office and on the Advisory Board who are always available to help. We run "Marketing Monday's" each week on our closed Facebook group, set up social media calendars monthly, and work collaboratively with everyone on the team. It really is an incredible group of supportive members, and with nearly 8 million dog owners in Canada and 75 million in the United States, we have a massive market to teach.
Once you submit your application, you are mailed your manual and given full access to the Trainer Portal with all the internal teaching information.
You can withdraw anytime, but refunds will only be issued if you have not yet been issued your manual and portal access.
