The stable management course covers many different aspects of looking after your horse or horses, including horse psychology and exercise.

The qualification will provide the encouragement for the student to enhance their employability by giving a good foundation to the industry.

2. Farming Management: Learn How To Work Your Own Farm

Have you always wanted to work your own farm, or have the land, but not the skills? This unique course in Farming and Management will provide you with the skills needed to achieve these tasks.

Due to a number of key factors, such as cost and suitable knowledge, the people who are most likely to become farmers are those people who have been raised on or have lived on a farm. But this is not always the case, and recently there have been increasing numbers of people who are leaving urban lifestyles for a farming life.

Hobby farmers often start with a small allotment, while maintaining their mainstream work or income until they are comfortable about making a living from their "hobby". Some progress to larger properties once they have established the skills, knowledge, and financial backing to enable them to farm profitably on a larger scale.

3. Animal Communication: Learn To Connect And Hear Animals In A Totally New Way

Animal communication is a natural ability that we all have. Through rediscovering ourselves and learning to understand animals we learn to connect and hear them in a totally new way. By communicating with animals in this way we can learn about their health, emotional and environmental problems.

The way in which the animal’s caretaker plays a role in the animal’s life can have a huge impact on both the animals physical and psychological welfare. By working jointly with the owner at the request of their animal we can help to find a happy medium allowing the relationship to become closer and happier.

Throughout this animal communication course you will learn how to talk and connect with animals and learn how to use the information that they have given you in order to help them.

Animals can feel very much that they are living in our world where they are unable to communicate their wants and needs. By understanding animals in this way we can learn to understand the cause of unwanted behaviour, health problems and other issues from their perspective.

4. Animal Psychology: Enhance Your Animal Psychology And Behaviour Knowledge Base

This course will offer the learner a rewarding way of learning everything required to enhance their animal psychology and behaviour knowledge base.

Looking after pets needs and understanding them is very rewarding. This course will cover the natural instincts and behaviours of dogs, cats and other common pets. It includes domestication, and  how to prevent psychiatric issues . You will also learn how pets think, learn and feel, why they exhibit a certain behaviours and how to read their communication signs.

This course is ideal for anyone, whether they are considering a career working with pets, pet owners, as well as people looking to provide a service in the growing need for pet psychologists or someone who wants to gain a much better understanding and knowledge of pet psychology.

5. Animal Psychology Advanced: Explore The Development Of Animal Behaviour

From the showing of a peacock’s tail feathers to the waggle dance of a honey bee, and from the scruff reflex in dogs to the migration of sparrows, this course examines, in depth, the development of animal behaviour.

Just as with bodily characteristics, so with behavioural ones we can get an idea of evolutionary history by comparing traits among groups of related species. An animal’s genetic makeup and the environment in which it grows up both contribute to the final behaviour it exhibits, and it is the way in which these interact that contributes to the fascinating diversity of life we see in the world around us.

Advanced animal psychology presents us with a great variety of subject matter – at one end there is the study on a cellular level, and at the other end the study of animal groups. Why does an animal have a nervous system with its own particular sensory attributes, and why would an animal have two sets of DNA?

This course examines the events, genetic or environmental, which shape the development of a wide range of animals, birds and insects, making them the unique and fascinating species we see around us. For some of us it is enough to watch in wonderment, but others of us want to be able to understand the remarkable things we see unfolding.

6. Animal Care: Understand The Basic Needs Of Animals

Our Animal Care Course is designed to assist the student in understanding the basic needs of animals; from the information provided, to obtain a better understanding of animal profile and then be able to identify their needs. Students will then be able to comfortably understand animal breeds and at an early stage pass on any problems or information to vets or owners to provide a greater deal of care.

Our Stable Management course has been specifically designed to provide the student with the vital information needed to operate a stable efficiently.

The qualification will provide the encouragement for the student to enhance their employability by giving a good foundation to the industry.

2. Farming Management: Learn How To Work Your Own Farm

Have you always wanted to work your own farm, or have the land, but not the skills? This unique course in Farming and Management will provide you with the skills needed to achieve these tasks.

Due to a number of key factors, such as cost and suitable knowledge, the people who are most likely to become farmers are those people who have been raised on or have lived on a farm. But this is not always the case, and recently there have been increasing numbers of people who are leaving urban lifestyles for a farming life.

Hobby farmers often start with a small allotment, while maintaining their mainstream work or income until they are comfortable about making a living from their "hobby". Some progress to larger properties once they have established the skills, knowledge, and financial backing to enable them to farm profitably on a larger scale.

3. Animal Communication: Learn To Connect And Hear Animals In A Totally New Way

Animal communication is a natural ability that we all have. Through rediscovering ourselves and learning to understand animals we learn to connect and hear them in a totally new way. By communicating with animals in this way we can learn about their health, emotional and environmental problems.

The way in which the animal’s caretaker plays a role in the animal’s life can have a huge impact on both the animals physical and psychological welfare. By working jointly with the owner at the request of their animal we can help to find a happy medium allowing the relationship to become closer and happier.

Throughout this animal communication course you will learn how to talk and connect with animals and learn how to use the information that they have given you in order to help them.

Animals can feel very much that they are living in our world where they are unable to communicate their wants and needs. By understanding animals in this way we can learn to understand the cause of unwanted behaviour, health problems and other issues from their perspective.

4. Animal Psychology: Enhance Your Animal Psychology And Behaviour Knowledge Base

This course will offer the learner a rewarding way of learning everything required to enhance their animal psychology and behaviour knowledge base.

Looking after pets needs and understanding them is very rewarding. This course will cover the natural instincts and behaviours of dogs, cats and other common pets.

5. Animal Psychology Advanced: Explore The Development Of Animal Behaviour

From the showing of a peacock’s tail feathers to the waggle dance of a honey bee, and from the scruff reflex in dogs to the migration of sparrows, this course examines, in depth, the development of animal behaviour.

Just as with bodily characteristics, so with behavioural ones we can get an idea of evolutionary history by comparing traits among groups of related species. An animal’s genetic makeup and the environment in which it grows up both contribute to the final behaviour it exhibits, and it is the way in which these interact that contributes to the fascinating diversity of life we see in the world around us.

Advanced animal psychology presents us with a great variety of subject matter – at one end there is the study on a cellular level, and at the other end the study of animal groups. Why does an animal have a nervous system with its own particular sensory attributes, and why would an animal have two sets of DNA?

This course examines the events, genetic or environmental, which shape the development of a wide range of animals, birds and insects, making them the unique and fascinating species we see around us. For some of us it is enough to watch in wonderment, but others of us want to be able to understand the remarkable things we see unfolding.
