PPAB offers the only Accredited Training Technician and Professional Canine Trainer  certification for professionals who believe there is no place for shock, choke, prong, fear or intimidation in canine training and behavior practices. 

PPAB also offers the only psychometrically developed examination for Training & Behavior Consultants who also support  these humane and scientific practices

Please note, until further notice, the criteria has been amended for "Coaching Videos" for each of the three Accreditation levels. The updated criteria can be found in this supplemental guide. This is due to social distancing and the inability to hold in person coaching sessions.

The Credentialing Process for Canine Training Technician CTT-A

Canine Training Technician - Technician – A definition

Dictionaries define the word technician in several ways.  “A person skilled in the technique of an art or craft” or “An expert in the practical application of science”.  We define a Canine Training Technician (Accredited) as “a technician skilled in the application of science and artistic endeavor who delivers results through the development of mutually respectful, caring relationships”.Canine Training Technicians work primarily on teaching  pet dog manners and work or are employed alongside a Professional Canine Trainer. 

The Canine Training Technician (Accredited) assessment is divided into four sections. 

            Section I                      Knowledge Base Assessment

            Section II                     Basic Training Skills

            Section III                    Creating a Positive Conditioned Emotional Response

            Section IV                    Running Training Classes

            Renewal          Every 24 months. Renewal fee and 10 CEUs required
