it was a wonderful course. they mail you 2 giant binders that you must study and take online tests (there are due dates for each) and you work with your own assigned partner through each step. they will either call or email you weekly for updates and q & a sessions. after completing the book stage you must attend an entire basic obedience course with an assigned trainer, then help teach the next set of courses, then attend the courses with your own dog (your assigned trainer will pick the order you do this stage in) after that you must complete 10 hours volunteer time at an assigned rescue/shelter, working with several different dogs to help them become more adoptable. it was a very rewarding course, and if you have any training knowlege (or common sense) going in, you won't have a bit of trouble with the book part. Good Luck, enjoy! (feel free to pm me with any questions!)
