I am a certified pet stylist having graduated from a grooming school. I am trying to achieve my Master groomer status.
The IPG group is compiled of pictures I have taken of my grooming. International ProfessionalGroomers certifiers can click in to this website, this group, and critique my work. The whole idea not only improves my grooming and understanding, but increases my chances of passing my practical exams with the required score for Master groomer exam.
The following is my status as of August 2012:
Salon Details written and practical exams. Certified in Salon Details.
Sporting Group written and practical exams. Certified in Sporting Group.
Non Sporting Group--written exam passed with a required score for the Master; practical exam not executed
Terrier Group--written exam passed with a required score for the Master; short-legged and long-legged practicals not executed
Master--I will be a candidate for the Master exam when I pass the unexecuted practicals.
