What is required to join our training program?
Except for a working knowledge of English, and a minimum age of 18, no previous training or experience is required. “School English” is fine. We are a butler school and not a language school, and your English capabilities will not be graded. Of course, you must be able to communicate in English and understand the lessons that are all in English. Gender and age are not important either. What is very important, is having a service oriented attitude and the right personality for this esteemed profession.
