Welcome to the Education Committee!

The Education Committee works on special projects where specific expertise is required. When working on a specific project or developing educational programs for PPG, the Education Committee convenes with the necessary skills and talent to complete the designated tasks.

PPG’s Education Committee was instrumental in developing the Pet Dog Ambassador program with a team from PPG Australia back in 2015. The committee also worked with Nocti, a specialist industry credentialing organization, to develop the examination and skills-testing criteria for the Pet Professional Accreditation Board (PPAB) credentialing program. The Education Committee works alongside PPG divisional volunteers to develop new PPAB credentialing programs and translate PPAB study guides into other languages, and it also plays a supportive role in developing PPG’s annual summits.
