Private Instruction

FOr Beginners, Intermediate or Experienced Groomers

This is designed for the beginner, intermediate or experienced groomer. Each day is tailored for the individual student. 2-3 cats per day will be groomed. This is hands on! This time can include written and practical exams for NCGI Certified Feline Master Groomer. Prior purchase of NCGI Syllabus and NCGI membership required. A minimum of 3-5 days is recommended. You test on 5 different cats so a lot of time is needed to adequately learn each groom. If a salon wants to send multiple groomers for PPI, group discount may apply. CFMG’s can take advantage of a day for creative grooming and/or up skills.

$700 / day (6.5 hr day with 30 minute lunch)

Grooming Residency

This is designed for the groomer nearing completion of CFMG testing or recently certified. Residency days differ from traditional PPI because we are now working on speed and precision not basic grooming skills. The “resident groomer” will be working alongside and with the supervision of our NCGI Certifier. The groomer’s goal is to complete 4-6 grooms in a 6 hour day. Take this opportunity to refine your skills and increase speed & efficiency in a state of the area feline exclusive grooming salon.

$250 / day (6.5 hr day with 30 minute lunch)
