What you need to know about bird first aid and bird-sitting—all in one course!
When you sign up for Bird First Aid & Care for Pet-Care Professionals, you will get immediate access to the course. This course is conducted through a series of easy-to-follow video tutorials.
The program is designed to move at your own pace from the comfort of your own home and you will have 6 months to complete it.
This course is made up of two sections:
- Basic Bird First Aid, which makes up the bulk of this course, taught by Pet Safety Crusader Denise Fleck™. Because most pet first aid trainings and courses focus primarily on dogs and cats, it’s important to take advantage of bird-specific pet first aid training like this one if you plan to offer avian care services.
- Bird-Sitting Basics, conducted by Pet Sitters International staff. This section reviews the basic information you need to keep in mind as you prepare to offer bird-sitting services as part of your pet-sitting business.
Passing this course will award students with a certificate of completion in effect for two years, at which time students are encouraged to refresh their knowledge by participating in the course again to renew their certificate an additional two years.
PSI members also receive the Bird-Care Specialist icon on their PSI Pet Sitter Locator listing upon completing this course.
And as a special bonus, as a student of this course you also receive access a bird care profile sheet, which you can use during your meet and greets to gather information about any birds that will be in your care.
Please note: After six months, you will no longer have access to your course or course materials, including your certificate of completion (so be sure to download it).
