When selecting what course track to take, there are two distinct paths that students can choose from: Training Development or Skills Development.

Training Development: If you are a business owner, consultant, serve as a trainer in an organization, or want to teach others what you learn at PSOW, we suggest the Training Development Track that will provide you with the basics of business and global etiquette, image enhancement (dining, presentation skills, etc.), and how to start your own business. Our “Intercultural Etiquette and Protocol Trainer” is the course that will help you influence and guide others and to help them enhance their professionalism.

Skills Development: If you are looking to enhance your personal and professional development, we have several skills-specific courses involving operational protocol that cover such topics as hosting VIPs, seating strategies, international visits, order of precedence, flag etiquette and gift-giving.
