Starkey International’s essential Eight-week Certified Household Management Program and the Four-week Certified Manager’s Program provide Household Service Management Certification. The distinction between the programs is that the Certified Manager’s Program is a high-bred and accelerated educational experience and expects students to be well-versed in service and technical skills. This four-week program is focused on Service Management and does not teach culinary skills. These students must be service professionals ready for an intensified program that demands after-hour study.
