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. 

PPAB Renewal Policy

PPAB credentials must be renewed within 3 months of the credential expiring.

Credential holders are notified by email 14 days prior to the credential expiration date and again on the date of expiry.

If the credential is not renewed during this three-month window, then the credential is no longer considered valid and must cease to be used by the credential holder.
