Program Completion Requirements
Upon successful completion of the program, students will be awarded a Diploma.
Students are tested at the
end of each quarter. Tests are written and oral. A hands-on test is
given pertinent to the specific breeds of study for that quarter.
Students are tested on their individual accuracy of styles that are
Breed specific. They are also tested on their homework assignments,
their ability to control the animal, their creative and artistic
ability and their ability to deliver a finished product.
A Diploma will be presented to the student that has,
completed all required hours and programs, has passed the tests with a
grade score of 70 or above, and has paid in full all tuition and costs
of equipment and supplies.
Probation and Interruption for Unsatisfactory Progress:
Students receiving a final score of 69 or below, will be placed on
probation, will be encouraged to attend additional classes and will not
be recommended for placement until successful completion. The probation
period will last two weeks, and, during this period, the grade score
must be raised to 70 or better. Failure to achieve a passing grade at
that time will result in counseling by the Director to determine
whether the student should continue the program.
