Beatrice Katsereles

The training exceeded my expectations with a very professional, well organized program, effective learning materials, and agenda. I literally could not wait to learn more from the moment I entered the classroom.

Beverly Reed

The Protocol Officer Training was the best training I have ever taken. I learned so much and really realized the worth of my role and work as a Protocol Officer. The facilitators were absolutely engaging, truly Subject Matter Experts and the best at their crafts.

Caren Hergenroeder

Now I have the credentials and a certificate on my wall and people see that when they walk in, so I feel like it really has defined me more as a protocol professional.

Charlena Edge

Connie Erickson

I have attended many continuing education courses over my 30 years in Corporate America and have submitted many course evaluations, but have never been compelled to write a testimonial. With that said, the Protocol Officer Training course was "hands down" the most professional, well-organized, informational, and practical training course I have ever attended. The breadth and depth of the curriculum was very impressive and extremely relevant. The instructors were fantastic; very experienced, knowledgeable, passionate, encouraging and had lots of personality (which in my opinion is as important in an instructor as it is in Miss America). From registration to graduation, the administrative staff was professional, friendly, thorough and accommodating. And last, but not least, the venue was superb. Thank you to everyone at PSOW for such a positive experience!!!

Thank you all for the outstanding training you provided to me and my classmates in May 2016. All that I experienced served the US Army War College well, as my staff and I orchestrated 692 Protocol engagements (distinguished visitor visits to the US Army War College, Senior leader presentations, meetings, conferences, workshops and seminars) 
during a very busy and tough 2016.

Fahad Alshehabi

Our partnership with PSOW brought significant value to the Bahraini professional community. We wanted the best educational provider in the field of International Protocol Training and we found what we wanted with The Protocol School of Washington.

Graduate of Protocol Officer Training

This training was absolutely fabulous! I had a great time learning the finer points of protocol. Being new to the field, it was very eye-opening and a great way to meet and network with other protocol officers. I would recommend The Protocol School of Washington and strongly encourage those in my office to attend.

Graduate of Train to be a Corporate Etiquette and International Protocol Consultant

This was an outstanding training opportunity and I am exceptionally thankful to have had this chance. From start to finish, every detail was thought through and taken care of. It was smooth, classy and professional. I am so excited to get back and get busy. Prior to this training my 'spark' had begun to dim a bit, but I am excited to report that this training and your instructors have reignited my flame! Watch out world…I’ve been equipped with knowledge and I am dangerous! Thank you to everyone who played a part in the planning and execution of this even! Thank you!

I can tell why all of my career services colleagues encouraged me to participate in PSOW’s training – simply the best! Not only did I learn a great deal, enhance my skills and become a better presenter, I made amazing friends along the way.

Julie Wakefield

I would recommend PSOW to anyone interested in learning more about business etiquette and protocol. By making an investment in PSOW you are also investing in yourself. You can control your own destiny. PSOW will open the door; you just need to walk through it.

Kimberly Hillson

If you are going to invest precious time and money it should be with the most qualified and professional organization. PSOW provides the skills, data, and materials but most importantly they continue to provide the network and support needed in this industry.

Lieutenant Mark Ziegler

The instructors are very energetic, professional and knowledgeable. They are specialists in each particular area.


Marie Hornback

The material is first-rate and will enable me to present seminars and briefings with confidence. Each seminar leader at the school is an acknowledged expert in their field and presented each topic in an interesting way.

Mark Jones

I thought protocol was military and flags. What I found out is; if you are doing events; if you are dealing with VIPs; if you are overseeing groups of people coming together to accomplish something, you are in protocol. You need Protocol Officer Training because everything you need to be successful is designed to be in this course. People hate boring training – and we do to!

Mary Renner “Every person on your team is a tremendous asset and anyone would feel lucky to learn – not just from their expertise – but from their style and warmth. The experience cannot help but make us better trainers,  but no matter what the future holds I will never regret the investment. How do you put a price tag on confidence?”
Melinda Crews, Founder and President

It’s not often an educational program provides context and content in such a powerful way. Practical, comprehensive and amazingly succinct (given the global scope of the curriculum!) Hats off to PSOW for an educational journey I won’t soon forget.

We are not just reading a script. We’ve actually been out there and done the work so we can tell you what worked, we can sure share with you what didn’t work, and we can help you strategize for how to make it perfect in the future.

Rosemary Murphy

My primary goal to come to the school was not just for myself, but to bring this information back to my company, primarily to the sales team because they are the first line our customers see and they represent our brand.

Sarah Walters

PSOW gave us all the tools to bring our cross cultural experiences to a new level. What amazing energy and kindness. I feel forever changed and I thank you.

Protocol Officer Training is the finest continuing education I have taken in my career...the best time and money spent. The class is incredible. The instructors are phenomenal. The knowledge you will gain is immeasurable. And the experience is priceless.

Tarin Hodges

As an image consultant, I understand the value of your look, your personal brand and your finish which takes you to one level but when you complete protocol and etiquette training, and put that together, you have a complete personal brand.
