Being a CCPDT comes with a variety of benefits including ones designed specifically for you!
The CCPDT is proud to announce the launch of our new Certificant Benefits, with more being added in the near future. Certificants already receive great offers and discounts from companies like Dogwise, Tawzer Dog and Business Insurers of the Carolinas, but now we have added E-Training for Dogs and PROfur insurance (Canadian)!
Our friends at E-Training for Dogs are providing a generous 25% discount on their Ethology and Behavior Lecture Series webinars. They will also be offering a special 15% discount (for a limited time) on their CCBC-KA Exam prep course! E-Training for Dogs is an online comprehensive educational site offering a very wide selection of webinars, courses, programs and lecture series for dog trainers, breeders, owners, canine behaviour consultants and canine enthusiasts! Be sure to read our article by Cheryl Aguiar, PhD, the founder of E-Training for Dogs, wherein she covers her response to the common question: “I want to get a Certificate in dog training. How do I do this?” Cheryl also talks more about the CCBC-KA Exam Prep Course at E-Training for Dogs. Don’t forget, certificants receive 15% off this course until March 31st! Learn more about Cheryl Aguiar, PhD here.
We are also welcoming PROfur to our Certificant Benefit Program. Certificants in the United States have been able to access great insurance at a discount with our partners at the Business Insurers of the Carolinas. Now Canadian certificants can also benefit from discounted insurance, in recognition of their hard work and high standards. Canadian certificants will now receive a discount on new and existing policies with PROfur insurance! PROfur currently has brokers licensed in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI.
