The purpose of ISCC is to provide networking and educational programs. To this end, ISCC implements a comprehensive, multi-level certification program to establish acceptable and recognizable standards of pet styling excellence. ISCC also provides voluntary programs whereby pet styling expertise may be visibly demonstrated, measured and verified.
The National Cat Groomers Institute was formed in May 2007 for the purpose of setting and maintaining cat grooming standards, providing real-life training, and awarding certification to those that wish to take certification exams.
The NCGI is the only feline-specific groomers’ association to offer such extensive training and certification to people around the globe, whether they are already working within the pet grooming industry or they are simply looking for a new career.
In the pursuit of grooming excellence, this professional membership association of persons engaged in the grooming and care of dogs offers a curriculum of activities including educational workshops, certification testing, conduction of meetings, seminars, trade shows and grooming competitions.
