The Diploma of Professional Dog Training program is a rigorous and advanced completely distance oriented program of study intended to help dog trainers or other animal field related professionals upgrade and expand important skills and knowledge for their careers in dog training beyond the industry standard and attain a valuable credential. It involves an intensive distance course on the principles of behavior and the technology of dog training. CASI uses a shaping model of education, setting the student up for success and provides support/guidance and multiple opportunities to refine and resubmit assignments rather than just slapping a grade on them and moving on. This results in greater conditioning and minimal stress for the student. It also means that incorrect answers do not result in failure or low grades but rather an opportunity, with guidance, to condition the correct response.
