This new qualification is designed for learners who already have experience of working with canines and other small animals in an employed or voluntary capacity, in roles such as animal care assistant or veterinary nurse. It is aimed at those who wish to build on their existing knowledge and skills to understand the benefits that hydrotherapy can have for canines and other small animals, with a number of conditions, and learn how to administer hydrotherapy to them.


Learners who successfully complete the Level 3 Certificate will be able to continue in further education and training related to this area of expertise.

This qualification is a component of the membership requirements for professional bodies within the sector.

Centres should be aware that Reasonable Adjustments which may be permitted for assessment may in some instances limit a learner’s progression into the sector. Centres must, therefore, inform learners of any limits their learning difficulty may impose on future progression.
