Join our 2 hour Pet First Aid certification program delivered by webinar to your computer in the comfort of your own home.
Your Pets Deserve the Best –
All pets deserve the best. You have to be prepared to take care of your pets when there is an emergency. And most importantly you need the training and experience to make sound decisions in stressful situations. PPG’s Pet First Aid makes a valuable addition to your pet care toolkit so you can be prepared for any emergency.
Invest Two Hours In Your Pets Safety –
Make the best investment in pet care you can by getting your PPG First Aid certificate.
Please remember that first aid is literally that: aid or management that is rendered as soon as a problem is identified at the scene of an accident or injury, and as a bridge between those first to respond to a problem until the time when professional care is provided. This education webinar focuses on pet first aid.
Many people confuse first aid with specific treatments for illness or injury. This often results in proper care never being received or care being delayed to such an extent as to compound the problem.
If you would like to receive your PPG Pet First Aid Certification you will have to complete and pass an open-book online certification test comprised of 50 questions. You will also be required to provide four short 30 second videos to demonstrate hands on competency.
