Who is this course for?
Ideal for those looking to get into dog behaviour research or to work as a behaviour consultant. Only open to students who have finished the CE101 course.
Once you sign up, you will pay the fees for a month at a time. The course consists of a series of practical and theoretical exercises that you will need to complete. You can do it at your own pace. Your tutorial guides you through the exercise. You will complete as many exercises as you can in a month and then the learning portal will lock up till you pay the next month’s fees. However, if you are unable to resume learning immediately, you can take a short break and return to the course at your convenience.
This course does include hands-on work with dogs. You can do this on your dogs, other’s dogs or streeties. We have our special way of evaluating your skills in this online format. You will be guided through a personalised learning plan that gently encourages you to push past your comfort zone safely. We are particularly proud of this bit!
Laser Learning Awards is the Awarding Organisation (AO) that has accredited BACBED as an England-level 4 diploma. This means that the AO has reviewed the course content and confirmed that it meets the standards of an OFQUAL Level 4 diploma in England. The certificate will be issued by Laser Learning Awards, after confirming that the student performed at the expected level.
It’s an online diploma, but you are not alone! You will have a tutor, but the best part of BACBED is that your tutor will work with you on a 1-1 basis, completely customising your learning experience for YOU. This means that you will learn at a pace that is just perfect for you. Every person learns at their own pace, finding different parts of the course challenging, and our personal tutoring approach ensures that each student gets the necessary customised help.
Traditional classes rely on tutors lecturing to students. But at BHARCS, we only ask the right questions. Students discover the answers themselves, either by observing dogs, working with peers or volunteers, or studying the existing research in the field. This is “experiential learning”. Students learn via experience. BHARCS guides the student on what kind of experience to seek out and how to learn from it.
We learn best when we learn with others. So, while you do the lectures at your own pace, from the comfort of your home, you also will be included in our WhatsApp group with other learners. It's a great platform to share your success stories and challenges. Once you complete this workshop, you will have the option of staying back in our groups if you are working with dogs. This way, BHARCS will continue to support you through your professional journey.
Only open to students who have completed our CE101 foundation course.
There are roughly 500 hours of learning to complete, though each student will be unique in how much time they might need. You will be able to do this course if you can put aside 7 to 14 hours of learning each week. The course is self-paced, which means you can go faster when you can and can slow down if something else comes up. You will be given a total of 30 months to complete the entire course content.
Students will need to pay the BACBED fee of Rs. 10,000/- per month over two and half years.
