Frequently asked questions

Why am I paying more tuition?
The International Butler Training Institute is a small private school.

We are probably the smallest most exclusive butler school in the world,
we train in small groups (max 5 students), so that more attention is paid to learning by doing. The classes are taught by Mr. Greveling, Grand Master in Hospitality and Butler service himself at a private location that meets all the requirements of a dignified working environment.

The tuitionfee is an investment in yourself. You will save time with us, an entire (all-inclusive) butler course in four weeks. Because we provide intensive education (full days, 330 hours), you can start working earlier and therefore earn your investment back sooner!

Everything is included in the tuition fee, your accommodation, all meals such as breakfast, lunch and dinner, coffee and tea during the day, fieldtrips, all your training materials and even a complete Butler uniform. This comes to € 285.00 per day, where everything is really included.

This applies to Butler students: due to the clear structure of The International Butler Training Institute, 90% graduate in four weeks with a obtained diploma or certificate. Compare that with the 49% who only graduate after five years (!) From a comparable hospitality education.

Why are butler students in suits?
To feel them self at home in the butler and / or business community. At The International Butler Training Institute you can get used to walking around in a suit. Because of the neat clothing, you are not just a student at school, but a professional-looking employee, one of the guys!
Why don't students wear the morning coat?
At The International Butler Training Institute, students wear a dress suit (white tie) on special occasions.
And why don’t the butlers wear the traditional morning coat, like at other butler schools.
We have made a clear choice in this, often events, such as a formal dinner are in the evening, you only wear the morning coat during the day, in the evening after 6 p.m., you wear either a tuxedo or a dress suit. Because many of our guests come in a tuxedo or suit and we want to distinguish between our guests and the butler students, the choice fell on the dress suit, as it should be in terms of etiquette and porotocol.
Will I work in the Butler profession after the training?
That depends on you. What you actually learn from us is to think in an entrepreneurial way. That is precisely why you will not be stuck with one profession in the future.

The demand for trained professionals is huge. We have the knowledge and experience, to be successful.

Training is about change. Training is about transformation. Everything The International Butler Training Institute stands for is sharing knowledge and life experience about the butler profession to our students.

What do I going to earn?
The amount of your salary depends on your education, personal characteristics and work experience. With us, you focus on those matters during your training. Once you are on the job, you can continue to grow.
Do I have a job after the training?
Some students have a job at the time of the graduation ceremony. Most students find a suitable job shortly after the training. This often arises from our collaboration with various recruitment agencies or from our vacancy bank. In this way, an average of 75% of the students find work, sometimes even before they receive their diploma.
Who are the teachers?
The classes are taught by Mr. Greveling, Grand Master in Hospitality and Butler service himself. The other teachers are passionate professionals. Most of them come from the butler industry or the corporate world. That is why they can transfer their knowledge well and always make the link to practice.
Is The International Butler Training Institute a Massive Training?
The International Butler Training Institute is certainly not a learning factory. We would like to remain a small study program with a maximum of 5 students. This way we can provide an unique and high qualified, exclusive training program.
Do I get an exemption?
You follow all lessons at The International Butler Training Institute. Because at the graduation ceremony we want to make sure that you have learned everything we offered you. And if you already know about certain things, you can distinguish yourself with high marks.
