There is no substitute for experience gained over time, but at Fur & Away we are able to assure our students of an on going advisory service should they come across anything unexpected. We are always willing to offer refresher courses when needed, or to further enhance your grooming skills and qualifications.
Fur & Away students have access to participate in external examinations and attain an overseas certificate. This ensures that our students have the unique opportunity to travel abroad to meet other groomers, exchange ideas and partake in grooming competitions throughout Asia, USA and Europe. International Certification provides a professional pet stylist with greater potential to secure future employment. International Certification provides clients with the confidence that they are dealing with a skillful, Industry Certified stylist. At Fur & Away we recognize the value of International Certification and exposure to overseas grooming trends.
Our Principal Instructor and Master Groomer, Alex Ang, has over the past twenty years gone from being a student to becoming an Internationally Certified Master Groomer, to owning three flourishing grooming salons and two successful grooming schools. He continues to travel the globe, to not only refine his own skills but to stay current with new trends and ideas in Asia and the US.
It is this level of commitment, passion and pride that students at Fur & Away will be exposed to. Our students are taught a life skill that with enthusiasm, determination and dedication will allow them to reach their personal goals and future ambitions. Students at the School have a rare opportunity to be tutored by a team of Instructors and lecturers who are all either fully certified groomers or specialists in their field. The combined team’s experience, in the grooming salon, in the competition arena, in the veterinary clinic, in the classroom and abroad provides the school with knowledge, maturity and stability.
With the emphasis on perfection, the School’s aim is to provide an exceptional standard of quality groomer training and education. The small classes allow for individual attention and the chance for each student to shine within their grooming course. Our students enjoy the advantage of receiving, as part of each course, a complete set of professional grooming tools. This kit consists of top quality, durable tools that form the foundation of a skilled stylist. Fur & Away is committed to ensuring that our students use the best grooming tools available.
Fur & Away School of Pet Stylists strives towards raising the standards of dog grooming through presenting an all round excellent training program coupled with international certification opportunities. This is our goal so that the public can be confident they are dealing with competent industry certified professional pet stylists, handling their beloved companions.
We want our students to leave us equipped with grooming skills that meet their future needs, whether it is for their own grooming salon, working from home or to improve their existing grooming skills.
