    a different way to work with my three I wanted to say a big thank you for the hard work and time put into the courses and for the patience and understanding of where I am at and what I have still to learn It could be quite We haven t been able to stop thinking about what we learnt and we re hungry for more We bought half a dozen books to keep us going Course Structure The IPACS is best known for its unique practical approach to handling and canine behaviour However theoretical aspects of behaviour and psychology form the basis before practical work is undertaken It is a multi disciplinary course normally taken over a 1 year period leading to an in house certificate of attendance Upon completion of the IPACS students wishing to work towards a formally recognised Open College Network WMR accreditation may then attend four intensive two day study blocks Submission of a portfolio is required based upon the content of the IPACS course which is then assessed by an independent impartial body This intended to address the demand for course nationally recognised in the UK and that also has standards that are identifiable within other EU countries PROGRAMME STRUCTURE The programme is divided into two parts and completion of both parts leads to accreditation if required Part 1 The IPACS Foundation Programme The programme comprises ten areas of study each of specific subject content in its own right with a strong behavioural emphasis Areas of study are structured so that canine communication is studied at an early stage along with an introduction to health and stress in particular as these are all critical to student development and understanding The programme then focuses on teaching awareness and competence in handling skills and moves into delivering a foundation of understanding canine behaviour and psychology including learning theory and canine development Following this the programme broadens into delivering knowledge to the public through teaching and concludes with a focus on behaviour counselling requiring a thorough understanding of previous areas of study Each area of study builds on knowledge and skills drawn from previous areas Although each area of study comprises self contained topic areas there is a progression building upon behaviour and training knowledge acquired It is important that students complete the entire course in sequence and particularly the first two blocks which are mandatory Students missing a particular area of study may have another opportunity to make up the gaps in their knowledge at a later date but 85 attendance is required in order to receive a certificate of attendance Wording on the final certificate may reflect which areas of study have been attended Current students come from a variety of backgrounds from pet owners to professionals working full time with dogs As practical work is a fundamental part of the study student numbers will be strictly limited in order to provide individual guidance Where handling is required students without dogs may be able to
