Choose the one that works best for you!

In-Person (where an instructor is available) 

Hosted by a local pet business, rescue, or community center, in-person certification classes are held in areas where we have certified instructors availble. Click on the button below to see a list of upcoming in person classes by state.

Live Virtually on Zoom

Virtual training with a live instructor and includes lecture, hands-on instruction, feedback from the instructor and Q&A sessions. Each month we offer most of our certification training classes virtually live on Zoom with a certified instructor. This is a great option for people located in areas where we do not have any in person classes or for people who prefer virtual training. 

On-Demand/Self Paced

On-Demand means that the course is made up of various content items such as videos, class recordings, PDFs, and presentations that each participant can proceed through at their own speed. Pet Emergency Education offers on-demand self-paced courses on our other website These types of courses contain the same content and provide the same certification but the course is delivered asynchronously. Participants can log in and out as much as they like but must complete the training within 30 days of the date of purchase. 

The standard registration fee for all of our classes is $74.95 per person*

All registrations come with: 

An Official Frameable Certificate

Businesses, organizations and groups may request a professional, customized lobby certificate and window decal to hang in their place of business to promote that their staff/members are certified
