Do you work in the hospitality industry? Or as domestic household staff?  Then you should really consider doing online Silver Service training to boost your confidence! Whatever your job is exactly. Within the domestic household or hospitality industry, you will benefit so much from knowing silver service. Knowing and learning new skills can really boost your confidence in your job. And online training is a great, accessible and affordable way to gain this extra skill. Which in turn will help to give you that confidence boost.

Learning New Skills

Whether you are a butler, housekeeper, nanny or working in a hotel. Being able to do silver service is a highly valued skill to have on your CV. You would be surprised how often it will come in handy. It shows that you can be a multi-skilled employee that can be working in so many different situations.

It can create great job opportunities for you. As it means you would be able to jump in, when a butler is ill, for example. Or when there is a last-minute dinner party – you would be able to set the table and provide formal service to guests. Whilst that might normally not be your job at all.

Being multi-skilled is a great way of standing out in a very overcrowded job market. When applying for new jobs, it can be really competitive. And that can plat onto your confidence. So making sure you have extra, solid skills can really give you a boost. And when you feel more confident in your skills, you will bring that across in job interviews too.

Having this training on your CV can be just the difference between you and another, otherwise similar, candidate.

Why Online Silver Service

So why would you consider doing online silver service training though? Of course, doing an in-person silver service training course can be a great thing to decide. Silver service to learn is very practical. So it required a lot of practice and certain props to be used. And during in-person training, that will all be there for you.

However, doing an in-person training course is really time-consuming. In your busy working schedule, it can be really challenging to find the time to commit to a 2 or 3-day course. There are only s many holiday days you can take off. Or unpaid leave. Perhaps you a reliving in a different country form the training venue. The travel,. potentially internationally, will take so much time. All extra time, besides the actual training course.  Then there will also be the expense of having to stay overnight too.

Following from that last point: It will e much more cost-effective to do your silver service training online.  Firstly, it is most likely that the actual cost of the course will be lower. You will also save lots of money on travel and potential hotel bookings.

A final great benefit of doing online training is that you are in charge of the timeline of the course. You are not restricted by completing all the modules in one set training weekend. Instead, you can spread the course material out over times when it works for you. In some cases this even means over several months!

Private Online training

If you prefer to have the benefit of a real-life trainer guiding you through online silver service training, you can consider a private training course.  That also is an option! Training providers who offer online training can also create custom made training especially for what it is you are looking for. Perhaps there are only certain modules you are after. Or you want to combine different modules for different training courses.

A private training course like that will normally be set up over a video call such as Skype or Zoom. This way your trainer will be teaching you live over a video call. They will go through all of the modules with you. A great way about this is that the trainer can observe you doing your assessments and practise. So you get live commentary on how you are doing in your practical skills. Which will help to build that confidence even more!
