INDIVIDUALS AND STUDENTS - For those without a business yet who may want help starting out. If you're a Student and your training provider is a member of BIGA, you can get your first year free (ask your provider to enrol you). ALSO - if you are an Individual groomer with your own business, it'd be better to sign up to the Business level membership so we can send you a window sticker and include your business in the website directory of BIGA businesses. Don't forget to access the 10% discount from HIA Business Insurance as well as the other discounted benefits and downloadable forms which you can get in the members area.
BUSINESSES - this is the main membership for pet grooming businesses and applies to a single business location whether you groom from home or operate your own mobile grooming business or you operate from commercial premises. This level provides access to all the normal benefits PLUS you can have up to six members of your team access the member website.
TRAINING CENTRES - this is for pet grooming training centres only and allows for up to ten members of the team to access the member site, plus your training centre is featured on mybiga.org. Training centres must be an approved centre or approved assessment site for one of the BIGA-recognised qualification pathways (eg. City & Guilds, ICMG, iPet Network, OCN etc.) Training centres may be required to provide proof of a teaching qualification and dog grooming qualification.
HONORARY AND ADMIN - reserved for BIGA Honorary Members only and/or Admin and members of the Board
