General Information About Our Instructor Program

  • Although we ask instructors to help to secure their own classes, Pet Emergency Education works very hard to help locate places that will host classes for all of its instructors.  Through our extensive network in the animal community we are able to promote instructors through our office and help set the instructor up with classes in their area.
  • Promotional materials are provided to all instructors in their instructor’s kit and through our instructors resource site.  Free professional web pages will be provided for all classes which includes a registration page (Pet Emergency Education manages the registration process for the instructor)  A photo, short bio and contact email prominently displayed on our website for each instructor.
  • What is Your Financial Investment? Once the instructor purchases their Instructor Kit there is no continual financial commitment. We never require membership fees and instructors will never purchase books and cards for participants as they will be provided directly from the home office.  Instructors will receive all future development webinars and materials such as new editions of the class teaching PowerPoint and EBooks free of charge as long as long as they are affiliated with Pet Emergency Education, LLC. Instructors are independent contractors that receive a stipend for teaching classes.
  • Pet Emergency Education provides class materials such as books and cards to participants directly at classes.   Unlike our competitors who charge thousands of dollars for equipment and supplies,  we keep the cost of our instructor’s kit very low and affordable.   Simply purchase your instructors kit  and then never worry about purchasing class participant supplies.  See the link above for more information about the Instructor’s Kit. You do not need to buy your kit upfront.  We will not require you to purchase anything until you are done training.
  • Get paid for every class you teach!  Pet Emergency Education pays you to teach classes!  Instructors get paid $20 USD per paid participant in every class.  For example, if you have a class of 20 people you get paid $400 USD for three hours of work! (international instructors paid their country of residency currency equivalent)
