Competency Assessment Programme (CAP)
CAP – it is so good we set it free!
The Clicker Trainer’s Competency Assessment Programme was launched in 2002. The purpose to provide a curriculum based on levels of competency but also an assessment system.
Over 2200 people around the world have successfully completed CAP at different levels. It has now morphed into a verb “to be Capped”.
Learning About Dogs will no longer maintain the database of results or continue to certify assessors. Assessors that have already been certified have met our required standard and can continue to offer excellent assessment, training and feedback. Only Assessors that have been Learning About Dogs Certified may continue to use our CAP Certificates:
The system is now open to any dog trainer, club, organisation to use the assessment criteria to internally assess progress of trainers. If you are starting this assessment process I would suggest you have three assessors in the early days to develop the assessment skills and agree on the results and grading.
If you are more interested in training as a career I would suggest you look at our TAKL course and assessment program.
