Are you absolutely taken with coursing sports and want to start putting on your own events? Or do you have some experience but want to gain a more solid foundation for running your events? This Professional Certification Course for Lure Event Operators is exactly what you need! Written and designed by Pat Bennett, author of The Definitive Guide To Lure Coursing, and a professional lure operator for nearly 20 years, this course is an extremely comprehensive training curriculum that covers all the nuts and bolts of running events as a professional lure event operator. There is nothing more comprehensive on the planet.
The course is designed for people like you who want to start running lure coursing and FastCAT events for business or as a hobby, for fun and profit: it will teach you everything you need to know from how to run the dogs safely, how to use the equipment, all the ins-and-outs of running the events, the business side of these events, how to be profitable, and much, much more.
WHY TAKE THIS COURSE? Going through an intensive training program to become a Certified Lure Event Operator sets you apart from 99.9% of the operators out there running dogs. Aside from graduates of this professional training curriculum, people who are lure operators or coursing event providers have never had any formal training at all, and have gained their experience and knowledge in a variety of ways and from multiple sources. Most have either very little training or none at all. This creates a lack of continuity and standardization across the industry and leaves the dogs and their dog owners at the mercy of untrained people who may or may not be able to create a safe experience for their dogs or put on well-organized events. This course goes way beyond the basics and provides all the information you need to become one of the best new lure operators in the world.
So, aside from training, what does certification give you? Your designation as a Certified Professional Lure Event Operator creates:
•Mantle of authority and trust
•Provides qualifications in all aspects of coursing events
•Creates an aura of distinction, competence and integrity
•Recognition and respect as a professional
•Designates you as accomplished and experienced
•Validation in your profession
This is an intensive and ultimate comprehensive study course with nearly 500 printed pages in two coil-bound color volumes, plus quizzes, handouts and materials, videos, and a Certification that will be emailed to you upon completion. 30-45 minutes of live or email support with Ms. Bennett is included and available by appointment. Stand out in your field and learn from the very best!
