Advanced Animal Psychology

About the Advanced Animal Psychology Certificate

Contrary to popular belief, it is not only humans who require psychological care. Just like us, animals feel anxiety, fear, aggression and a whole range of other emotions. This means that animals, much like humans, may struggle to handle or deal with their feelings. This advanced distance learning course teaches learndirect students to observe and interpret animal behaviour, allowing them an insight into another kingdom.

Spread over seven informative e-learning modules, this course has been designed to build on the Animal Psychology qualification. Students will study units which cover topics from human to animal communication and animal linguistics, to predators and prey and defence mechanisms. Altogether, the work should take around 120 hours to complete.

Who should study this course?

This home learning qualification is perfect for students who have already completed the previous qualification. However, it is worth noting that it is not essential to complete the previous qualification first if you do not wish to.

There are no prerequisites for this advanced animal psychology qualification. This course is suitable for students of all levels. All we as is that you have a way to access our online study materials and that you have the motivation to study independently.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this course, you will be awarded with a certificate in advanced animal psychology. This certificate can be shown when applying to jobs, gathering clients or even when enrolling on further study programmes.

A qualification in advanced animal psychology will come in useful in lots of job roles. Jobs in which this qualification will come in useful include but are not limited to:

  • Veterinary assistant
  • Dog walker
  • Animal trainer
