Private Instruction


Need hands-on training with real cats? We provide the industry’s most thorough and effective hands-on training for beginners, experienced groomers, and those wanting to obtain certification. Whatever your needs are, we can customize a program just for you with one or more days of Personalized Private Instruction (PPI). Some popular formats are below.

If any of the above items are not brought to PPI training, they are available for purchase at the start of the training day. All other necessary tools, equipment, and grooming products are provided by the NCGIA and use of such is included in the cost.
