Safety in the Salon Recertification for Salons (Basic)
As an AKC S.A.F.E Certified Salon, you understand the importance of salon safety and demonstrating that commitment to your clients.
The AKC Safety in the Salon Recertification Course for Salons provides an important refresher on salon safety best practices and teaches you new strategies to keep yourself, your employees, and pets safe while in your care in a grooming facility. It also provides a comprehensive review of the components of AKC S.A.F.E. Certified Groomer/Salon Oath, so you remain up-to-date on your salon’s safety responsibilities.
Recertification is required annually from the “certificate effective date” that is printed on your AKC S.A.F.E. Certified Groomer Certificate. The course can be completed at your own pace.
Note: Your current AKC S.A.F.E. Certified Groomer employees need to take the AKC Safety in the Salon Recertification Course for Groomers every two years in order to remain certified. This is to be purchased as a separate product.
