Dear prospective student,

The International Butler Academy is more than simple training or a career-enhancing program. It is a life-changing experience. Sitting in a classroom is only a small part of the teaching. Between living at the academy, having daily tasks, and the director emulating your ‘Principle,’ you truly step into the life of a butler.

The benefits of living in the academy are extensive. You get real experience as a live-in butler. Theory can be learned anywhere, but practical development can only truly be learned in a real-life setting that the academy provides. In my class of Fifteen students, there were fourteen nationalities and many different backgrounds. It was eye-opening and, I believe, beneficial to be among so many distinct cultures.

It is an intense ten weeks. On multiple occurrences, I found myself at what I considered my limits and had my eyes opened to the fact that I could do so much more. Through the ten weeks, I went through every emotion, but looking back, I only feel an enormous amount of pride and fondness for the academy. I genuinely believe that attending the academy pushes you to be the best you can be. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to start or advance their position in the private service industry.

Sincerely, Benjamin M. Umansky - USA
Graduate of the International Butler Academy - November 2022
