Is this the course for me?

This introductory course is designed for the general public who are interested in learning some easy self-help relaxation techniques that can be applied to their dog,  family and friends. Everyone over 16 is welcome. No prior knowledge is expected. Curious therapists and canine specialists are also joining this course to experience EMMETT before enrolling on the Practitioner Course.  Classes are limited to 10 people maximum so you benefit from individual support and supervision.

Is there an assessment?

No! Just relax and have fun! This is not a professional qualification.

Will this course contribute to my CPD?

Well, that depends. If you are a practising therapist in another discipline, it is unlikely this Introductory Course will count towards your CPD – check with your association.

If you are an EMMETT Practitioner, then attending this course does qualify for CPD.

I am already a practising therapist, can I use what I learn with my clients?

You are welcome to use what you learn at the EMMETT Dog Introductory Course with your clients as a complement to your usual therapies and techniques. However as you are not qualified as an EMMETT Dog Practitioner, it is against ASA guidelines to promote and market yourself as an EMMETT Practitioner.
