For Estate Owners
Searching to provide training of distinction and world-class service for your estate management team?
Throughout this four-week, 175-hour course, students visit multiple properties in the Knoxville, TN region, including various estates and corporations.
Although in-class training is held at Peak Technical Institute global headquarters in Maryville, TN, students also gain direct experience in an actual household setting that is designed specifically for household management training.
An actual employment experience can very likely involve a home that, while luxurious in nature, will most likely be found in a remote area much like our beautiful, 4,738 square-foot home in Friendsville, TN. This offsite training is one of the many enhanced, one-of-a-kind offerings this program provides to its students.
Our students also gain knowledge in Smart Home technology by visiting residences using this cutting-edge technology and a distinguished restaurant featuring world-class dining and wine specialists that have also benefited from our one-of-a-kind course.
What distinguishes Professional Household Management?
We deliver excellence
We teach leadership skills. We don’t simply teach individuals how to be butlers or household managers. We instill a sense of leadership in each student, catapulting the future professional household manager to take professional responsibility beyond their day-to-day estate duties.
We incorporate real-world scenarios of household management utilizing Peak Technical Institute’s President and CEO Eric W. Barton, who serves as acting principal throughout the course. Students are exposed to many aspects of life as a principal, including social, philanthropic – such as charity work that the principal does in the community – and his corporate interactions, gaining a better understanding of how to best serve their principle.
The genesis of Professional Household Management began with the Enlisted Aide training program through Peak Technical Institute’s sister company Front Range Training and Consulting. The Enlisted Aides are assigned to serve in a General Officer’s residence to create and maintain an environment suitable for that general to conduct official business. These top-level graduates solidify PTI’s belief in the need to have top level, sophisticated and loyal professional household managers serving in the homes of America’s brightest minds. With that groundwork, the civilian program – Professional Household Management – was created. PHM does not train on military standards but rather utilizes the highest standards established in Enlisted Aide training to create the best practices for today’s household manager.
2017 Enlisted Aide dates: April 3 – 14 & October 16 – 27
Why choose Professional Household Management above the rest?
Estates require the finest world-class service professionals to fulfill management roles, and with current needs and expectations more vital than ever, a higher level of competence, knowledge and poise is essential.
The Professional Household Management program fulfills all of these needs as well as additional training that most programs do not cover such as household security, emergency preparation, international etiquette and smart home technology.
From developing leadership skills to table setting and mixology, the PHM program is comprehensive and effective. The four week, 175-hour course provides graduates with a solid education and the necessary experience to provide world-class service and management.
The Estate House Management training program at Peak Hospitality Institute is a excellent highly well rounded educational school for the Domestic Private Service Industry. The instructor Mr. King is extremely knowledgeable in all fields of study and trains you to have the finest eye for detail. I recommended this course for the novice and the already experienced Domestic Private Service professional.
This class has been a great way to not only learn a lot of everyday applications, but to open your eyes to a new way of thinking and attention to detail. Thank you!
I have been a working professional for over 10 years, and I have never partaken in a program that was more valuable to my career. The lessons learned in the PHM Course are applicable to all aspects of management. I have been able to immediately use the education I received in my personal and professional life.
