Welcome to the Service Dog First Aid Course from ProTrainings in association with the London Retired Police Dogs Trust. This course is aimed at anyone who works with service dogs and looks after a retired service dog. The course is presented by Nicky Bell, a registered vet who works and supports with the LRPD. You can find more information about the London Retired Police Dogs Trust at Throughout this course, you will watch a series of videos, answer some knowledge review questions and then finally, take a short completion test. You can start and stop the course as often as you wish and return to it exactly where you left off. You can also watch any of the videos again at any time during and after the course. The course can be viewed on any device. So if you wish, you can start watching on your computer and finish watching on your smartphone or tablet. You can click the corner of the video to pin it to the top of your screen so you can read the text while watching the video.

On each page of the course, there is text available to read about the subject covered to further support the video, which you can view with subtitles by clicking the CC icon if you wish. There is also additional help available if you initially answer any of the questions incorrectly. Once you have passed the test, your completion certificate, certified CPD statement and evidence-based learning statement will be available for you to print off. Your certificate can be validated by scanning the QR code printed on it.

There are many resources and links to support your training and these can be accessed from the course home page. We are constantly updating our courses, so please check back regularly to view any new material. We give you access to the course for eight months from when you started it, even after you have passed your test.
