Certification…

Do you have experience in working for private homes but lack professional training?

Did you learn your skills from the “old guard” but never received any kind of recognition or certification?

Don’t feel you are getting the recognition of salary you deserve?

Or unable to get a position because potential employers are not sure of your abilities?

We now offer a one or two-day testing process that allows you to demonstrate your capabilities in private household service and thereby achieve the national recognition that comes with certification. This is a wonderful opportunity to receive validation in a tangible way, as receiving certification from Professional Domestic Institute will provide you with the backing of a nationally-renowned training facility with the highest reputation for quality household staff. This process will also provide you with a critique of your current skill level and that can help you ascertain what areas you may need to improve upon.
