ABI Advantage

Why do students select the Animal Behavior Institute for their education? Here you’ll find faculty and students that share your interests and your passion. Our programs promote a strong sense of community, where students form close relationships with their instructors and colleagues.


The strength of our program is built upon our long history of accreditation, the outstanding quality and commitment of our faculty, and courses that provide you with a personal education.


The Animal Behavior Institute is accredited by the International Accreditors for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). IACET accreditation includes a rigorous review of every aspect of an educational institution, including:

  • Academic environment and student support

  • Faculty credentials

  • Course content and structure

  • Learning outcomes

  • Financial resources and stability

We’re proud to have been accredited by IACET for over 12 years. This external accreditation ensures that you’ll receive a high quality education at ABI. IACET continuing education credits are accepted at over 200 companies, organizations and regulatory boards. As a result, our courses are widely accepted by other professional organizations. 


Our online programs are taught by professional faculty with decades of experience in their fields. Whether you’re creating training plans for canine agility, designing equine diets, or building an enclosure for golden eagles, faculty guide you every step of the way. The credentials of our instructors are listed online. See for yourself why we say that our faculty are our greatest asset.


An online education doesn’t have to be an impersonal one.  Our maximum class size is 12, providing you with ample opportunity to get to know your instructors – and for them to know you. ABI courses are taught through Moodle, the most widely used online learning system in the world, employed by hundreds of colleges and universities. This highly interactive platform promotes regular interaction between students and faculty. Each week you’ll participate in discussions, case studies and projects that develop your skills under the guidance of your instructors. You’ll share your challenges and learn from your colleagues as well. While other schools provide self-study programs, we offer a truly collaborative learning environment.


You can be confident in your educational investment with the Animal Behavior Institute. We are proud to offer the most generous refund policy in the industry. You can review your courses during the first week of each semester. If you decide they’re not exactly what you wanted, we’ll refund 100% of your tuition, no questions asked.
