Four weeks butler training

The fee for this unique, exclusive and high qualified four weeks training program, is € 7.950,- (seven thousand nine hundred and fifty euro) The training program includes your training at our training location, all of the materials you will need for your lessons, a Butler uniform, your accommodation (single bedroom with your own bathroom) a simple breakfast at your accommodation, lunch and dinner at the private house, and coffee, tea, and soft drinks throughout each day of training. At the end of the program, you will receive a unique diploma, our certificate.


What is required to join our training program? 

A minimum age of 18, no previous training or experience is required. "School English" is fine, we are not a language school. Of course, you must be able to communicate in English and understand the lessons, because they are in English. What is most important, is having a service oriented attitude and the right personality to become a professional butler.


Why our school is the number one of its kind,

Please forget the Downton Abby picture that you have in mind, it’s 100 years ago and not realistic any more. The modern Butler nowadays, is working all by himself, managing the hole house, a part off his jobs are Cooking, Laundry, Ironing, Housekeeping, Cleaning, Shopping for food, Organizing events and parties and much more.

For the practical training at our house, Role-playing is an important instrument, to get used to the demanding people you will work for, this is why Mr. Greveling, when you work as a real butler at his house, will be your high demanding principle Mr. Templton. Mr. Templton is not a Butler, so don’t look at him and judge him as a Butler, he will be your high demanding, extravagant, stylish and quirky principle with his own attitude and behavior.

Every single day is a practical learning day, all private dinner, high tea and cocktail parties at the house are real, the high demanding Mr. Templton is real and challenges are real, this is there for you to get your “learning by doing” training.

Mr. Greveling knows from his experience in the field, as a professional Butler, as well from his experience as a teacher and Head butler at TIBA, what it needs to become a success full professional English Butler. This is why he made this “learning by doing” training program, specially for the students at The International Butler Training Institute. To become a professional Butler you need practical experience, you have to see how it works, this is also the reason why The International Butler Training Institute works with less students. At school you are a working butler student, who wants to become a professional butler, so you have to be focused, concentrated and willing to learn, this is not possible if you are with a lot of students at the same training program, students are too busy with each other and teachers cannot be focused and give you the education you need to succeed. The International Butler Training Institute decided to train 2-3 students at each training program, so we can give you the hand outs, experience and expertise you need.

Student letters:


Dear Mr. Greveling,


One year will almost past, however the thoughts about The Academy are still here and assumably not only me but follows every one of my ex fellow students.


I will admit that you were the highlight of all that journey we pass together and my happiness 'at the certain moment' is really big when I see that you found yourself in Heloma where 'One to one' really means a lot for someone who knows you already and knows what is the meaning of that, and who will meet you in closer future of course.


Thank you for you, for making my/our life so remarkable and at last, for being my/our Butler Sensei. Keep up good work with that eccentric and adorably charismatic character you have and of course, until next time.


Sincerely yours,




Dear Cornelis,


I hope you are well,

Your program and your academy look wonderful, what an great vision, learning by doing, I hope everything is fine and your students are happy because you are the best,

I miss you and I miss terribly your "at a certain moment, you have to listen, understand and execute" you are a star, and I am sure I still have plenty of things to learn from you, if I have the time and the luck to see you in the nearest future, I will be more than happy,

Take care of you Cornelis

Kind regards,

Your Colleague, Friend and still student Marvin.😊😊
