    Is this a class to train you to be an instructor or a class you are taking your dog thru? 1 hour a week for 8 weeks is not going to make you a dog trainer. Definitely not one that I would go to. What organization is doing the certification? APDT?
    Have you ever trained a dog and earned any obedience titles on it? What experience do you have besides the 8 weeks of training you are taking?
    If you are in it just for the money, find a new career choice. I belong to a dog training club and instuct there, FOR FREE. Why? Because I enjoy it. I started taking classes to teach my own dogs and decided I would enjoy helping others teach their dogs to be better family members. I teach beginners and the next level up.
    As for pay rate, if you make more than $8 to $10 an hour for teaching at Petsmart, I’d be surprised.

    The money in that has to be follow up private lessons with a business card handed out. 35/hr I’d charge

    Maybe you should ask them?
    Why would you take a job without knowing how much you’ll be paid?
