An Officially Registered Training Institute

The International Butler Academy is an officially registered training institute. Of the various registrations, the one with the Dutch CRKBO (www.crkbo.nl) is one of the most important ones. This governing body examines, verifies and registers private institutes, assuring that these institutes and its trainers comply with the highest standards of education and that appropriate policies are in place. Once an institute is registered with the CRKBO, the institute's students do not need to pay VAT (Value Added Tax), which is of course a huge saving for the students. We are registered with the Chamber of Commerce, pay taxes, are regularly audited, and are affiliated with a number of professional organizations. Even the building we occupy is regularly checked as it is an historic building, and protected by the National Trust. Last, but not least, virtually every placement agency in the world distinguishes TIBA as the only professional butler school in the world.
