The grading system for this online course is based upon:
30% of the grade will be gleaned from study units, homework, training videos, and test scores. All training begins with theory. Students must understand the ins and outs of training before successful dog training can be a reality.
70% of the grade will be based upon practical training experience, enthusiasm, attitude, participation, promptness, and the “finished product” of training a dog. In our effort to produce graduates who know more than mere theory, the overall grade is purposely skewed in favor of actual dog training, not just reading a book or watching a video. This percentage will be compiled by your training videos and overall participation in the program. Students must receive at least an 80% final score to graduate. Successful graduates will receive certification of their accomplishments, proving to all that they have the knowledge to competently train our canine companions.
