Launching January 2018

The Pet Professional Accreditation Board - Credential Transfer. 

Starting in January 2018, the Pet Professional Accreditation Board (PPAB), grants permission for specific industry credentials to be transferred to PPAB under special circumstances.

The Guidelines 

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. 

Operational Guidelines & STEPS


  1. Determine which credential you would like to transfer into
  2. Read the eligibility requirements for the level you have chosen
  3. Ensure you are in compliance with the PPAB  ethics 
  4. Complete the application form and pay your transfer fee of $50.00
  5. Complete the documentation form to submit your necessary documents ( 6 month requirement to complete this). We will work with you to audit your current credentials and determine what is missing.
