Meeting the needs of the pet industry

NPC works closely with a range of partners in its delivery of qualifications, including City & Guilds and Pearsons’ awarding bodies. They have been developed in conjunction with pet industry businesses through its association with PIF and therefore you have the peace of mind that an NPC qualification or accredited course not only meets national guidelines but also meets the needs of the UK pet industry.

Through NPC’s constant dialogue with pet industry businesses through PIF, courses are regularly updated and developed to ensure that the training needs of the pet industry can be fully supported by NPC courses.

Even better, PIF members get discounts on the training provided by NPC.
