Will a Certificate Course certify me as a dog trainer?

Please review the difference between certificates and certification

Fear of Technology?
What are the computer requirements needed to watch a recording?
Your web browser must have Flash installed. iPhones and iPads do not support flash, and therefore cannot play the recordings. Almost all other computer platforms, devices, and web browsers worldwide support Flash and will be able to play the recording.
For all technical support requests, please visit this page.
Please note: all Apple mobile devices, such as iPhone and iPad will not display archived eLearning courses. Apple does not allow flash technology to be used in any of their mobile devices. This restriction of theirs will prevent you from being able to view the eLearning courses on those devices. The webinars will display properly on all other computer platforms, devices, and web browsers.
