Skill Assessment Program & Accredidation
Our Skills Assessment program is a series of 53 skill videos, broken up into three stages. They are what Al considers to be the essentials needed to properly train a horse. You record yourself, duplicating each individual skill and submit your video. Al will respond with feedback and you will either pass or be asked to re-do and re-submit. We provide rewards for completing each stage. There are two ways to participate with the Skills Assessment program. One is to simply use the program as a challenge, a goal, and a way to measure your progress. The second is to use the Skill Assessments as a pathway towards earning a Team AD Accreditation.
Those that are interested in becoming a Al Dunning Accredited Trainer/Horseman must complete and pass all 53 Skills Assessment tasks and then participate in a two week one-on-one apprenticeship at the ranch with Al. If you pass the entire program, you will receive a Team AD buckle and our endorsement of your training program. Your photo and bio will be featured on the "Team AD Accredited Trainers” page of the website and you may use the Team AD logo in your advertising and business promotions. You will also receive ongoing business mentoring and support from Al.
