Class Schedule

Class Days & Times

We offer full-time grooming training classes with a schedule of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

All classes have a 1/2 hour lunch break and two 15 minute breaks (one morning - one afternoon). We have a strict policy against the use of cell phones and other electronic devices. All personal matters should be taken care of during our break times.

Starting March 2014, Central Jersey Grooming Academy will begin offering a PART-TIME Dog Grooming Course on Saturdays.

In order to begin the part-time class, each student must attend two weeks at full time hours before assuming the Saturday only schedule. All part-time students must still complete the overall program hours and testing in order to receive a certificate of completion. All tuition payments are also required on the same schedule as the 18 week students even though part-time students will complete the course somewhere between 42-48 weeks.

Time Off, Vacations or Leaves of Absence

If you need to take a break from school just give us two weeks notice. All requests must be made in writing and approved by the school administrator. If your leave is approved, you will be reinstated to the class at the point you left off. In some instances, you may have to wait for the next 18 week course to begin in order to be reinstated. There are no refunds once you begin classes. We are serious about training you and want the same level of commitment in return.
