As a certification association for cat groomers, the National Cat Groomers Institute of America, Inc. set the standards for cat grooming within the pet grooming industry. Certification drives groomers to provide the highest level of care and service and also assures clients that their beloved pets are in good hands. While certification is certainly not the only measure of a groomer’s abilities, it has been linked with higher earning potential and other rewards. In order to show one’s aptitude for performing the handling and grooming skills necessary in meeting those standards.
Earning the Certified Feline Master Groomer™ (CFMG™) title requires passing a total of nine exams with a grade of 85% or higher.
The nine exams consist of four Written Exams and five practical exams.
