The Pet Professional Accreditation Board - Credential Transfer.
Starting on January 15, 2018, the Pet Professional Accreditation Board (PPAB), grants permission for specific industry credentials to be transferred to PPAB under special circumstances. Each specific level has operational guidelines and eligibility criteria that has to be met by the transferring candidate.
PPAB currently operates three levels of pet industry credentials. Each level requires the candidate to meet specific eligibility criteria and then follow an incremental process to reach accreditation. At each credential level this process includes the testing of both academic knowledge and mechanical skills. To transfer a credential into PPAB at any level the candidate must be able to demonstrate that they have correlating ethics in place, a competent knowledge and the practical skills to carry out their craft at the level to which they are applying. If only one component of the credential requirement can be demonstrated through the candidates current credential then they will be required to supplement their application through either the taking of an examination or the submission of specific skill videos.
