Education and Certification Dispute Policy

IACP encourages anyone with a complaint or concern regarding certification exams or Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) to seek resolution.

The initial resolution should be attempted between the IACP representative and the person disputing the unfavorable grade or CEU notification from IACP Education and Certification if you are comfortable doing so. This can be done by emailing certification@canineprofessionals.com. Should the issue be resolved and mutually agreed upon, then that will be the end of the matter.

If the affected person and IACP representative are unable to amicably resolve the issue, then IACP encourages all persons to resolve these complaints or concerns through the process outlined in the EC Dispute Policy and its procedures. To initiate a dispute, fill out and send the Education and Certification (EC) Dispute Form by mail, fax, telephone, or online as outlined below. Please read the dispute policy linked above before initiating a dispute.
