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. 

For a successful credential transfer the Pet Professional Accreditation Board  may need you to provide certified copies of any current credentials you carry and are submitting as part of your credential transfer. We reserve the right to request certified copies if there are any questions about the curernt documents you have. For example:

  • If your person identification does not contain the same name as an exisitign credential and we do not know you, then you will be requested to have your doucments certified. 

Certification of Your Document - Credit Transfer Only

These certified copies are documented proof of your current credential and the results from your prior knowledge and or skill testing.

You will upload these certified copies into the transfer submission form. These copies prove that you currently hold the credential and that you are as stated. To support the documents you will also upload a copy of an official Photo ID  which has also been certified.

The PPAB Approved Certification Process

Take the photocopied document and the original and ask the person to certify the copy by:

  1. writing ‘Certified to be a true copy of the original seen by me’ on the document
  2. signing and dating it
  3. printing their name under the signature
  4. adding their occupation, address and telephone number

Persons who can certify your documents

To certify documents, ask a professional person or someone well-respected in your community (‘of good standing’) like a:

  • Bank or building society official
  • Minister of religion
  • Dentist
  • Chartered accountant
  • Solicitor or notary
  • Teacher or lecturer
  • Veterinarian

The person you ask shouldn’t be:

  • related to you
  • living at the same address
  • in a relationship with you

Certifying a Translation

If you need to certify a translation of a document that’s not written in English then you will need to  ask a translation company to confirm in writing on the translation:

  • that it’s a ‘true and accurate translation of the original document’
  • the date of the translation
  • the full name and contact details of the translator or a representative of the translation company
