ICPG Written Tests

In addition to the ICPG Practical skills tests, the following series of tests must be successfully passed to become an ISCC Certified Professional Pet Groomer. To begin the written test process:

FIRST: Select and click on the desired test. It will link you to the order form.
NEXT: Complete the order form and submit payment
THEN: Once the order has been received, you will receive a “Test Link” via email from ISCC.

Note: “Test Links” via ISCC Email are process and forwarded Monday-Sunday, 9am – 9pm. Dependent upon the time you complete your order, expect to receive your “Test” Link” within 1-24 hours following receipt of your order form. Once you take your test, you will receive instant grade notification.
