The Level 1 Remote Trainer (RT1) course is a comprehensive introduction  program to the methods and techniques of utilising the remote trainer for multiple purposes.

This 1-day program is designed for persons looking for a formal training in the effective & humne use of remote training electronic collars. This program does not focus on one specific area, instead it teaches the basic principles and processses.

The program covers a diverse range of topics including:

  • E-Collar Controls & Fitting
  • Initial Conditioning to the E-Collar
  • Using the Collar as a Remote Training Device
  • Using Vibration & Audible Mode to Cue Behaviour

Our training programs are designed for those persons that are looking for the best education in dog training and behaviour modification available. We have world-class facilities and use the most modern & effective training methods.

Course instructors include some of the world’s leading experts on dog behaviour, breeding and training. You will also learn directly from highly experienced Law Enforcement and detection agency trainers, ensuring you get real-time training, not just the theory!


There are no specific prerequisites required for this course however, a basic undestanding of operant conditioning and the principles of behaviour modification will greatly assist your learning during this program. If you do not have any prior learning in this area, we highly recommend reading our manual: The Principles of Behaviour Modification (An Introductory Guide for Dog Trainers). This manual will be provided free of charge when you register for the RT1 Course.

Any background you have in dog training or behaviour management will be of great benefit. Some basic pre-reading material will be provided prior to commencement.
