Skills Upgrading

Do you need upgrading?

Are you an existing groomer who has been working in the industry without formal training, and would like a recognized certification? Want to improve your general scissoring skills? Want to offer your clients additional specialized services such as hand stripping? Want to learn more about advanced pattern settings and breed styles Then we can help!

At Alberta School of Dog Grooming, we offer a wide variety of individually customized options for groomers looking to upgrade their existing skill level either generally, or on specific breeds and techniques.

Options range in length from one day (e.g. pattern setting specific breeds), to a one month refresher. All courses are individually tailored to meet your specific requirements, and students will receive a certificate upon successful completion.

There are a wide variety of upgrading options available, so please contact us today for more information.


So far, I have hired two graduates from the Alberta School of Dog Grooming and I couldn’t be more thrilled! It was obvious right away that the training was thorough and reflected the most up to date grooming techniques.
Both graduates felt ready to begin their careers immediately after training and my clients continue to be thrilled with the results!
I would recommend this grooming school to anyone seeking excellent training towards a rewarding career working with animals! Well done to Lyn and her team!
