Find a BehaviouristContact Us

FABC believe that clinical animal behaviourists should be highly qualified, highly experienced and work to the highest ethical standards, following up-to-date scientific techniques. Consequently, all of our Certificated Members are independently accredited and conform to the regulatory standards set by the umbrella body, the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC).

Currently, the only route to external, independent accreditation as a clinical animal behaviourist is through the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour’s CCAB (Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist) scheme. Our Certificated Members have all met the standard required for CCAB.

Our Candidate Members are all working towards CCAB accreditation, which involves evaluation of both academic and practical experience. This means that FABC’s Candidate Membership category reflects a wide spectrum of professional competencies, from experienced behaviourists who awaiting their final CCAB assessment, to those taking their first steps towards learning about animal behaviour.

In the lists below members listed in green are Veterinary Surgeons.

CANDIDATE MEMBERS

For ease of understanding, FABC have clustered Candidate Members into three general groups, as explained below.

Our Candidate Members come from a wide range of backgrounds.  The independent accreditation body, ASAB, assesses whether a candidate has attained the academic and practical knowledge necessary to be certificated as a clinical animal behaviourist.  Some Candidates have gained CCAB Pre-certification ☑, acknowledging their academic competence, while others have not yet.  However, all Candidate Members have not yet been assessed as having gained the practical knowledge necessary for becoming a clinical animal behaviourist.

Student Candidates:  enrolled on a higher education course, gaining the academic knowledge required to become clinical animal behaviourists.

CONTRIBUTING SUPPORTER MEMBERS

Part of our mission as a not-for-profit social enterprise is to forge strong links between animal carers, behaviourists and vet staff in order to inspire and nurture the relationship between people and the animals under their care.  So, as well as behaviourists, we welcome a range of other people with complimentary skills to our membership in order to better support and contribute towards our mission.  These members are called Contributing Supporter Members.  Although these members may not be accredited behaviourists, they do bring a wealth of diverse experience and knowledge in other ways to FABC.  For example, they may be:

  • Lecturers or researchers in animal law and ethics, zoology, or human psychology;
  • Individuals working in organisations with an interest in FABC’s mission, such as animal welfare charities;
  • Individuals with a background in:
    • mentoring;
    • animal policy work;
    • producing TV nature documentaries;
    • public relations and fund-raising;
    • IT, events management, or administrative experience within an animal care setting
