Dear prospective student,

You are on the Academy's website, and that means that you have an interest in the work of a butler, a prestigious and uncommon work. The International Butler Academy is not only an academy where you learn how to be a butler, but it is also a life-changing training where you will meet your new family in the persons of the other students and in the staff of the academy once you graduate. TIBA is where you will probably face the biggest challenge in your life.

From 20 years old, I knew nothing about the world. I was destined to study economics and have a normal job in a normal company without having any dreams. After years in university, I decided to stop and do something that was interesting to me, and I began to look for butler school without having any idea what I was stepping into. After much research, I found TIBA.

I knew then that what I saw and read was the academy where I wanted to study. Everything is appealing in it, the location, the trainers, the curriculum, etc. I never faced any big challenge in my life, and I wanted to have one finally and I knew that TIBA would give it to me.

During the first week of training in TIBA, I always thought I was not in the right place and that it was not for me. But I decided to finish what I began. I had to face the biggest challenge in my life, and I am so happy that I overcame it and could finish the program as a professional butler! During my training, I met more than just friends. We were a real family who still cared for each other after much time has passed.

I also had the possibility to improve my skills by joining the team as an intern, and I learned so much during these months that I would not imagine how I could work as a professional butler or even have a good lifestyle without all this knowledge. I discovered a whole new world that I want to explore endlessly, and I sure will. If you are looking for real butler training, for a challenge, for a family, but mostly if you are ready to enter the vast world of butlers. TIBA is made for you!

I am so thankful to TIBA for offering me this great opportunity to be part of the great family that is forming all the graduates and trainers of the academy, for offering me the knowledge accumulated during much hard work, and for offering me a destiny in life.

Sincerely, Dorian Fercot – Belgium
Graduate of The International Butler Academy - July 2017
