A true and real household

The personalities, challenges and situations we created for our students are to simulate, and give you the experience of a real household.  Rather than lecturing you and then testing your understanding with narrowly focused question sheets, the idea is to set you a large, complex puzzle.  This puzzle is modeled on a real household as closely as possible.  As you grapple with the puzzle, you are forced to learn the subject matter of our butler training course. This is why 95% of our students graduate successfully and 85% end up in rewarding positions, somewhere in the world.
