This workshop will provide more of the technical details of working with BAT as a professional trainer, including: Taking a good history Client follow-up Choosing methods to use with the dog (whether that includes BAT) Reading Dog Body Language Know when to refer a client. BAT CERTIFICATION: This instructors' workshop will prepare you to take the BAT certification exam for professional dog trainer (optional). The certification application is free for participants and auditors of the instructors' workshop (one attempt - $100 value). The written portion of the test is taken at the workshop. A completed certification requires 100 hours experience training client dogs or modifying behavior as the primary instructor, plus 100 hours of experience working with clients (dogs alone or dog-human teams) on reactivity. These hours can be accrued before or after the workshop and exam. Auditors who pass the written exam will also need to submit a video case study. This case study is not required for participants. Note: The workshop is not necessary for certification, but it is highly recommended. Tests will be available at other times, to be announced later. Becoming a Certified BAT Instructor (CBATI) will also get you a listing on the website, discounts at, discounts at future workshops with Grisha, and access to a restricted Yahoo group. More details on re-certification, etc. will be released soon.
