Pet Emergency Academy is a collaborative effort created by animal and veterinary professionals coming together to develop high quality, relevant and industry specific online certification and continuing education programs. Our curriculum is designed by experts in their field with a wealth of experience in the subject matter. Pet Emergency Academy is the sister company to Pet Emergency Education, which offers in-person certification courses. It is one of the industry’s leading animal CPR, first aid and emergency training and certification companies. Pet Emergency Education offers in-person, live training with certified instructors across the US and Canada. Stemming from the rapid growth and overwhelming success of Pet Emergency Education, the decision was made to create a completely online school offering not only the PetCPR+ Canine and Feline CPR and First Aid certification program but a collection of quality, profession and industry specific animal emergency courses as well.
Certificates are increasingly recognized by employers and clients as validation of special skills and knowledge. Our certificate programs offer the possibility to pet owners and animal professionals alike to study broad or specialized areas of pet first aid.
Earning a certificate demonstrates your willingness to make both the financial and time commitments necessary for professional and career development and success. A certificate is only as good as the knowledge and skills gained by the student and Pet Emergency Academy proudly stands behind you with our name on your Certification.
