Training and expertise sharing will be part of Edumondi’s diversified and practice-oriented curriculum.

HAMBURG, Germany (April 26, 2017) – Privatimus, a provider of security consultation, risk mitigation and protection for family offices, high net worth individuals (HNWI) and corporate clients was selected to provide security awareness training at the prestigious German butler school Edumondi. The Privatimus training and expertise sharing will be part of Edumondi’s diversified and practice-oriented curriculum that attracts and educates students Europe-wide in household management and hospitality services as a professional butler.

Edumondi offers a broad and varied training program for future butlers, household managers or housekeepers that attaches the utmost importance to provide comprehensive sessions that are taught with the concept of hands-on, ‘real life’ situations. Privatimus’ contribution to the Edumondi extensive program is to provide security awareness and expertise in areas such as identifying surveillance activities from third parties, counter-surveillance techniques, how to prevent and measures to take in response to high-risk situations, handling social media and critical/confidential information.

“Security awareness is critically important for a butler and the entire household staff,” commented Sven Leidel, Partner of Privatimus. “With their intensive interaction in the daily personal and social lives of the families and environments they are providing service for, in addition to regular contact with a range of external providers, it is imperative they are trained with the knowledge to best respond should unfavourable security circumstances arise.”

In addition to the on-site training courses, Privatimus will also perform pre-employment background checks on academy graduates and potential candidates that will be placed by Edumondi in homes of their HNWI/UHNWI clients. Edumondi will also train, advise and educate Privatimus Executive Protection Agents in areas of etiquette, protocol, personal management and communication.

Jörg Schmidt, Managing Director of Edumondi added: “This cooperation of two German market leaders in their areas of expertise provides a very powerful advantage to students of the Edumondi training program, combining the high quality of both services in our extensive curriculum.”
