Frequently asked questions:

Can I start working right after grooming courses?
Our courses provide all the necessary foundation for a groomer's work, but graduates often want to practice for a while under the supervision of a mentor to gain confidence. Therefore, we offer our students the opportunity to intern for free. On average, our graduates need 2-3 weeks
Can I work as a private groomer after the course, not in a salon?
Yes, you can work independently, but you will need to immediately purchase a fairly expensive set of tools and pet cosmetics. Plus, find clients. When working in a grooming salon, everything necessary is provided, and there is a constant flow of clients, so we recommend starting your grooming journey in a pet salon
Why do I need an internship?
To refine the skills acquired during the course under the supervision of a mentor and to increase the speed of grooming. Salon owners prefer to hire groomers who have at least some experience. You gain this experience during the internship
How to learn pet grooming if I am currently working?
We have specifically designed grooming courses to gain the necessary knowledge and skills in a short period. Internships are held according to an individual schedule. Therefore, if you are working, you can intern in the evenings
Can I enroll in grooming courses if I don't live in Kyiv?
Of course. Our students come from different regions of Ukraine. We offer FREE accommodation in one of the good hostels in Kyiv near the place of study
You also have access to free consultation by phone:
(073) 606 74 44

You can take the first step towards your dream profession at any age!
