One-of-a-kind in training and placing domestic staff

Our Home Study Combines Convenience and Quality Training

Professional Domestic Institute’s Home Study Programs solves the problems that many people face when considering training. How many times have you thought “I would like to go but I can’t afford it, let alone afford to take the time off work?” That is where our Home Study comes in! You will have access to all the materials, as well instructor feedback and guidance. However, you are able to complete the assignments on your own time from the comfort of your own home. Throughout the entire process, our instructors are available for your questions. Home Study is an option for all of our programs, including Household Management, Estate Management, Estate Housekeeping and Innkeeping. Acquiring training is an investment that pays off in the long run. It will help you land positions and help you be successful in those positions, which is what Professional Domestic Institute strives to help you accomplish. With our home study programs, we make it easier and more cost effect to jumpstart your career in private service or take it to another level.

Professional Domestic Services offers all our programs in a multitude of lengths to fit your schedule and budget, including 4-week, 6-week, and 8-week classes. Even better, all of these programs are offered in home study!

Our shortest program, at 4 weeks, covers the basics of Household Management, such as time management and basic home care. Our longest program, at 8-week, covers Household Management more extensively, imparting a series of specialty skills that will give you an edge amongst the very wealthy who typically have very specific and extravagant requests.

Our 4-week programs are perfect for students that do not have the time and financial resources to commit to our full program. It is not nearly as comprehensive, but will provide a solid foundation for anyone looking to enter the field of household management. Our 8-week program is perfect for students that want to start their career on the next level right off the bat. The comprehensiveness of the 8-week program will allow students to take on a significant amount of responsibility as soon as they graduate.  If you can’t decide between these wonderful programs, attending our 6-week program may be the perfect compromise!

The Importance of Accreditation

What separates Professional Domestic Services & Institute from other reputable schools and placing agencies is our commitment to providing the best training to our students and the best employees to our clients. We, here at Professional Domestic Institute, hold ourselves to a higher standard, which is why our program is the only state-certified program in the country.

All of our programs are accredited through the state of Ohio’s Board of Career Colleges and Schools, meaning that our curriculum must meet the state’s education requirements. Professional Domestic Institute sought accreditation because we share the Board’s mission to continuously improve standards of excellence and effectiveness. By becoming state-certified, not only do we ensure that we are giving our students a quality education, but we provide them with the security that if we fail on this promise, they have an option of recourse. By being held accountable by the state of Ohio, all our students have a regulatory body they can contact with any concerns or complaints regarding our program.

We aim to provide our students with everything they need to be successful. Our state accreditation is just another example of how much we value this goal.

The days may be longer, but some of our programs are now shorter!

Professional Domestic Institute knows that people’s lives are busy. Though as much as they would like to, we know that not everyone has the time or finances to attend one of our full programs. As a result, we are excited to roll out a set of shorter series that focus on only the most important topics for Household Management and Estate Housekeeping.

This program is perfect for people interested in becoming a household manager, but don’t have the time to dedicate 8 weeks for our full program. This program is not nearly at comprehensive, but will cover the most important aspects of household management, as well as give you the full support of our placement agency upon completion. In addition, this program is available for home study as well! Call for, (740) 881-3358, details.
