    We are currently re-drafting comprehensive guidance and mapping for individuals to demonstrate their Accredited Prior Learning and Experience (APEL). We apologise for this delay but this is a substantial piece of work being done by the ABTC with input from all ABTC Practitioner Organisations, including ourselves.

    APEL is the way of showing that you have met the required Knowledge and Understanding requirements for Animal Behaviour Technician and Clinical Animal Behaviourist. These can be found here https://abtc.org.uk/practitioners-info/

    Various degrees or other courses may meet part or all of the requirements in terms of both content and level of study. For example, you may have studied Psychology, Counselling, Veterinary Science, Veterinary Nursing, Animal Management or some other subject. You may also have attended various CPD (continuing professional development) or have work / leisure experience that is relevant. The APEL Guidance notes will provide further information.
