Thanks heaps Weasles - I joined the forum today so I should and will fish through the other threads :)
The diploma looks really interesting too, I'll also keep an eye on that, as animal (including human hehe) behaviour is the field of work I am studying to get into. Where is the diploma based - i.e. is it an accepted accreditation in Australia?
I'd like to do some practical 'hands-on' animal/dog training experience though, and the ten months distance with NDTF is what I find appealing, rather than the 2 1/2 years with Delta, as I mostly want to learn how to train dogs to use in animal-assisted therapy. Plus, I just want to learn how to train dogs in its own right ;) But I have some time to do a comprehensive look into the two, before I make any decisions.
Thanks for all your help :)
