By joining the National Cat Groomers Institute, you are taking an active role to grow and promote the education of cat grooming around the globe. Our goal as an organization is to provide you the resources, training and support to not only elevate your knowledge and techniques, but to also help educate cat owners.
The NCGI is the original feline-specific groomers’ association to ever be formed. It has quickly grown into an international organization with members from all over North America, Australia, Europe, Asia, and South America. We exist to serve professional cat groomers around the world.
We also offer certification for cat groomers to achieve and demonstrate their abilities, by earning the title of “Certified Feline Master Groomer.” The NCGI is the first organization to provide a high standard of excellence in the cat grooming industry and we are proud to continue to push this industry forward with innovative products, training platforms, seminar events, and more. Sign up today and join the cat grooming revolution!
By obtaining membership with the NCGI, you agree to the following terms:
Annual renewal of membership is required to maintain CFMG title. For renewals, please visit our membership renewal site.
For those who have completed 1 or more certification exams or earned the CFMG title, membership must be maintained to keep the benefit of completed exam scores. Should a member choose to let their membership expire while certification is in progress or CFMG title has been obtained and then decide later to continue with the certification process, they will need to start over by signing up as a new member and pay the new member $60 fee for the first year. They can then choose between the following two options:
A. Start from the beginning with the exam process to retake any previously passed exams, or
B. Pay the file recovery fee of $285 to reinstate all previously passed exams and have their file updated.
The file recovery fee will be invoiced via email when applicable.
Use of the Certified Feline Master Groomer (CFMG) title is prohibited by anyone not a current member and in possession of an unexpired CFMG certificate issued by the NCGI. Unauthorized use of the title is strictly prohibited. You agree to pay any legal fees and attorney fees incurred by the National Cat Groomers Institute, Inc to enforce this policy. South Carolina law applies.
