Certification through The Etiquette Institute gives immediate credibility. This training qualifies for continuing professional education credit. In addition, all consultants become lifetime members of The Etiquette Institute, without a fee. One-to-one mentoring with Ray Angle is available for as long as the consultant wants it, without a fee.
Individuals who apply for training generally have the desire to have their own consulting business whether it be to coach adults, teach children or both. Etiquette consulting is fun and profitable. It is a great opportunity for a stay at home parent, a retiree, an entrepreneur, or someone looking for a fulfilling career change.
Corporations, educational institutions, and professional organizations send staff to The Etiquette Institute because it leads to bottom-line profitability. An in-house etiquette consultant can address the needs of employees, enhance sales training and orientation programs for new hires, bring the seasoned executive up to date on the changing nuances of business etiquette, as well as circumvent the etiquette behaviors that could negatively impact an emerging professional.
Universities and colleges are finding it cost effective to have a career services professional or faculty member trained and certified to give presentations and dining tutorials which gives students a competitive edge in the workforce.
There are no restricted territories, contracts to sign or residuals to remit to The Etiquette Institute, the current President (Ray) or the Founder (Maria).
