BAT Instructor Certification® helps ensure that you are providing the highest level of training. The benefits of certification include: * International recognition as a BAT expert. * Referrals from Grisha and other CBATIs.

CERTIFICATION AND REGISTRATION
A. Covered entities may not require documentation, such as proof that the animal has been certified, trained, or licensed as a service animal, as a condition for entry.
Some individuals and organizations are starting to sell products and services online that are linked to the Federal Government’s definition of a service animal. While most animals have the ability to provide some form of service to a person, it’s important that these animals are well trained and understand their owner’s disability.
People with service animals are not exempt from local animal control or public health requirements.

A. No. Registration of service animals is not permitted under the ADA. This is because the ADA explicitly states that “[t]he prohibition against discrimination on the basis of disability does not require a public entity to make special accommodations for disabled persons. This includes making facilities accessible, removing architectural barriers, and providing auxiliary aids and services.
