Flintshire based international detection dog specialists, Wagtail UK Ltd, are proud to announce that their Explosive Detection Dog Handler course has been awarded the Badge of Excellence quality mark by the Institute of Explosives Engineers (IExpE).

IExpE are a membership organisation promoting the highest standards in the explosives industry and ensuring the explosives sector has good quality training and educational opportunities available that meet the needs of employers. The awarding of a Badge of Excellence required Wagtail UK and their explosive course to not only be assured by the IExpE’s rigorous quality procedures, but also to be externally recognised to provide excellent training, development and learning provision and meaningful outcomes by a third party.

Wagtail International School of Excellence (WISE), Wagtail’s training school, is recognised as an Endorsed Centre, having been externally verified by IExpE to ensure all policies and procedures are in place to ensure safe and effective training. Wagtail are the only detection dog training company to receive Endorsed Centre and Badge of Excellence status.
