The IIAAPT is one of a kind and unique. Through my certification process, I appreciated the focus on acquiring the skills I need to conduct AAPT effectively and I valued the focus on the animals and their well-being. The pre-requiste course I talk about most is the Canine Communication course, which is a must have for anyone looking to work with animals and people, and is equally beneficial for learning to live harmoniously with dogs. The focus on positive training methods is pertinent in reflecting healthy, positive relationships with clients. The certification process through IIAAPT is thorough and extensive, but worth every penny. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing community with distinguished individuals and their animals.
