Description

This qualification is for persons who are engaged or employed to provide pet stylist services. An experienced pet stylist will know the styling standards for different breeds, understand small animal anatomy and be able to identify pet hygiene issues that may indicate a health concern. In addition to patience and a genuine empathy for animals, a pet stylist must maintain high standards of cleanliness and professionalism. Excellent customer service skills are required and stylists who own or manage a salon will also require good business management and organisational skills. Dogs may be the animal to most commonly visit a stylist, but stylists should be prepared to care for cats and other pets.

Job roles covered by this Qualification may include:

  • Head stylist
  • Grooming Salon owner/manager
  • Mobile Salon owner/manager.
  • No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication. However, an individual unit of competency may specify relevant licensing, legislative and/or regulatory requirements. Specific determination should be sought through the relevant State or Territory.
