Thats a rather skimpy explanation. Dog trainers don't need qualifications/certifications or a license. Certified behaviorists often hold doctorates in animal behavior as well as vet medicine. Dog trainers charge $25-$50 dollars an hour. Behaviorists charge $150-$300 an hour.

The problem is there are some areas (and some big-name trainers!) who may charge significantly more than that - and sometimes there are behaviorists who will work cheaper as part of a package. It's not as simple as vet with specialty in behavior either, although that's generally how folks use the term.

I do agree with the lack of info on article because I checked it out to see if I would find anything interesting, skimpy hits it on the button. I also know of trainers that go to homes and setup training programs for dogs give or take the same as the article's description. I'm not comparing the two just the description.
