Pet Partners – Team Evaluator Training opportunity for IAHAIO members

IAHAIO member Pet Partners is expanding their Therapy Animal Program internationally and is pleased to offer in-person Team Evaluator Training for IAHAIO members, adjacent to the upcoming October conference. Team Evaluators are responsible for assessing the skills and aptitudes of each animal/handler team through a series of exercises established by Pet Partners.

Prior to the in-person training event in Amsterdam, candidates must complete a mostly self-paced online course of study, which will take about 20 hours to complete.

Pet Partners is still determining the exact timing and location, but it will take place either the day before or after the conference. It will not conflict with key IAHAIO events.

Application is a simple google form –

to complete by 15 July for priority consideration; 6 spots are available. Selection will be based on a number of factors, including professional experience and geographic location. Application does not require you to participate, so there is no risk in applying now and then making a participation decision once more information, including the exact date, is available.

For the sake of brevity, further details will be provided by contacting Jesse Haas, program manager at Pet Partners at Submission of application will also trigger the distribution of further information directly to you, so apply soon!
