Animal Activity Licensing Regulations 2018 OFQUAL
Do you own or work in or own a Boarding Cattery, Pet sitting, or other related Cat Care Business ?
Defra has recently introduced a significant change with the Animal Activity Licensing (AAL) Regulations 2018. This new legislation applies as from 1st October 2018 and affects Catteries, Cat breeding and Cat Pet Sitting businesses.
Licensing requires clear evidence of knowledge and experience or a minimum of an OFQUAL regulated level 2 qualification in a relevant subject. The new regulations take effect on renewal or if your business is being brought into the scope of licensing for the first time.
This OFQUAL regulated qualification meets the new licensing requirements.
The OCN Awards Level 2 Award Feline Care and Behaviour Qualification is relevant for those wishing to expand their knowledge of basic cat behaviour and welfare. This OFQUAL regulated qualification covers recognising and avoiding problem behaviour, recognising and interpreting feline body language and understanding the needs of cats.
On completion of the two units, learners will understand how to provide for a cat’s basic needs and prevent common health problems.
