Christies Direct is proud to announce that our Groomer Development Programme has achieved accredited CPD (Continuous Professional Development) status with the CPD Standards Office.

After a lot of hard work, undergoing the rigorous process of having our seminars and your learning experience assessed we were delighted to receive the news that the quality content we have always delivered will now be formally recognised.

   What does CPD mean for you?

These fancy letters are all well and good, but of course, you want to know what exactly it means for you.

Continuing professional development is the intentional maintenance and development of your knowledge and skills in a professional context, whether that is honing current skills, developing them to a new level, or learning new ones that will help you expand your grooming repertoire.

So when you attend our Groomer Development Seminars you will be presented with a speaker and topics that have been assessed and are regarded as offering the highest industry-specific educational standards.  Of course, as well as being educational, our seminars will remain as interactive and informative as ever.

You will also be rewarded with CPD credits which will count towards your formal CPD requirements set out by your professional body, institute or employer, ensuring you are always a cut above the rest!

   When is the next opportunity to attend an accredited seminar?


On Saturday 9th November, Julie Harris LCGI NCGIA, will be at the brand new Pet & Country Store in Ballymoney, bringing her years of experience as a groomer and educator, to discuss four common breeds.

The morning will be spent grooming a Bichon and a Schnauzer before demonstrating how to groom a Westie and a Yorkie.  All this will be hosted in our new seminar room.

   Tell me more...!

 Following feedback from previous seminars, our new series of seminars will take place on a Saturday, from 9.00 am - 4.30 pm.

Your ticket price will include lunch, exclusive promotions & discounts, and spot prizes as well as a PREMIUM GOODIE BAG worth £40! There will also be Paw Points up for grabs!

Perhaps most importantly, you will receive your CPD accredited certificate to display in your salon or add to your educational portfolio.

Tickets can be purchased online, over the phone by calling 028 276 66879 or by dropping into the Pet & Country Store, which can be found at 38-44 Main Street Ballymoney, BT53 6AP.
