Applicants may be accepted for student membership after they have sought and embarked upon an approved academic course, or courses culminating in a qualification such as the A.DipCBM (Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management, NQF level 5) or an accredited qualification equivalent to the National Qualification Framework, Level 5 or above.

Those interested in student membership will complete the student TCBTS application form, providing proof of courses enrolled upon, a detailed CV, and references from two referees. The referees should know the applicant personally; academic references will not suffice.

Applicants who meet our criteria will now be invited to join us without attending an interview. Interviews now take place before being accepted as a provisional member.

The annual fee for student TCBTS membership is £60.

While student members are completing their academic courses, advice will be available through TCBTS if they have not yet reached the high standard of hands on dog training and consultation criteria necessary to apply for provisional membership. It is expected that student members will further their in-depth practical dog training experience in parallel with their academic studies.

All TCBTS Affiliates must comply with the strict TCBTS Code of Ethics and Practice.
