Scent Detection Academy offers comprehensive high standard education programs with several expertise modules to follow the general education of basic scent training.

We offer 4 general 2 day modules with basic to advanced training and information essential to understand how the dogs nose is working and why certain choices will and can be made both for the trainer / handler and the dog. These modules are supported by a variety of clinics which are possible to attend and the option to make appointments for private training.

Following these general education modules we offer the possibility to become a general instructor in for instance tracking or searching. You have to be a certified instructor for general obedience classes to follow the program.

Next to this complete program we offer several modules and follow up modules to become a qualified trainer in a certain line of work. For instance diabetes alert dog training, vapour system, eco dogs, general detection etc. But it is also possible to support you and see what other options are available in training, safety and ethics or if you have any specific training program you wish to discuss with us.

It is possible after consultation and discussion to offer education programs on location at your own venue or country.
