How it works

  • This course is run in conjunction with our registered training provider, Heiniger Academy. Heiniger Academy provides the online theory components of this course, while ADGS provides the practical training. Students are required to enrol with both Heiniger Academy and ADGS for this course.

  • Students will commence their online learning with Heiniger Academy, and then complete 20 days of practical training at ADGS. These 20 days will be split into 2x 10-day blocks (BLOCK 1 and BLOCK 2).

  • In BLOCK 1, students will undertake our Intensive Course where they will learn a range of skills including bathing, drying, clipping, and styling skills. In BLOCK 2, students will continue their practical training and have time dedicated to completing their required practical assessments. 

  • Students are given 12 months to complete both the theory and practical elements of the course from the day they enrol with Heiniger Academy. As course spots are limited, we recommend that students check availability and secure their course dates with us before enrolling with Heiniger Academy to ensure they don't miss out.
