The Emily Post Institute is America’s premier source of etiquette knowledge and insight. When you train with us, you gain association with our brand and benefit from nearly a century of Post family history and expertise.

Whether you’re a parent, teacher, after school program coordinator or an etiquette professional, our program prepares you to teach etiquette to children according to their developmental age groups: ages two to four, five to seven, eight to twelve, and teens.

During our intensive four-day training, trainees learn how to teach a comprehensive children’s etiquette curriculum using our seven training modules. Attendees also attend a one-day presentation and facilitation skills workshop, observe presentations and receive critique on presentations, and gain knowledge about how to build a successful children’s etiquette program. Graduates may market themselves as “Trained by The Emily Post Institute.”

What our graduates have to say
