Why Get Certified?
Professional credentials assure customers, professional associations, and consulting veterinary staff that they are working with people who are knowledgeable and current in basic animal care and husbandry.
How PIJAC’s Certification Works
Applicants are mailed a certification package containing a manual divided into chapters on animal care and maintenance and a final examination to complete. Examinations are returned to PIJAC for grading. Once we determine you have successfully completed the program, a certificate designating you as a PIJAC Certified Specialist is mailed to you. Certifications must be renewed every three years. See below for instructions on Recertification.
