Delta Institute member logoWhat is the Delta Institute?

The Delta Institute is the accrediting body for positive reward based trainers who have undertaken the national accredited training course conducted by Delta.

The Institute's role is to provide support, recognition and accreditation as well as ongoing education and peer support for graduates of our course.

It is also a go to place for pet owners to find professional and accredited trainers. 

So look out for this logo when choosing a good trainer.
