Here I get support, information and training on current, evidence-based knowledge. IAABC provides free webinars and content to earn member CEUs and also a lot of great stuff for further education like mentorships and online courses that I can highly recommend! A great community of international consultants offers great exchange on each relevant topic to support each others helping animals, their owners or even organisations that take care of animals of different species.
This group of amazing Professionals enveloped me in such an accepting atmosphere, which provided and continues to provide, resources and skills, to lift me up to the challenges we all face in this profession. As a new member I feel they have produced a nurturing atmosphere for someone like me to succeed.
IAABC has been an invaluable learning tool for both myself and staff. As a shelter professional, the webinars provide relevant and up to date information to be used in multiple formats. The online convenience allows for continuing education, minus the travel.The mentorship programs are nothing short of amazing, including the pricing . This organization is always looking forward and growing.
I am proud and honored to be certified by, a member of, and educator for the IAABC. I consider the organization to be the industry standard for well-rounded, quality, ethical animal behavior information that is disseminated in a supportive, effective, collaborative environment. The IAABC works very hard to produce not only quantity of educational resources, but also quality.
As a member, I get to network with experts in my field all over the world. This allows me to expand my knowledge in cat behavior as well as shelter behavior. As the feline behavior manager in an open intake shelter, this opportunity to learn from the best has allowed me to ensure the mental health and behavior needs are met for the cats in our care. The IAABC is the "go to" place for people all over the world to find experts in animal behavior. As a certified member my profile is available for the public to view. Since I earned my certification, I've seen my private business almost triple.
I am very impressed with the educational opportunities offered by IAABC. Members get free streaming webinars (many of them lectures from their conferences) with CEUs that count towards re-certification. There are a broad range of topics by presenters from a variety of backgrounds. Continuing education is important to me and IAABC offers many opportunities for continuing education.
For those dedicated to the enrichment of animal lives through professional pursuit or academia the IAABC is an invaluable asset
