Award-winning training

More than 1000 in-home advisors have received our award-winning training and gone on to run successful businesses at Hillarys. That’s because we know what works – it’s why we’re the leader in our market – and we’ll pass this knowledge on to you.

By the end of the initial five-day training course, you’ll:

  • Have an in-depth understanding of the Hillarys brand
  • Know all about the products in our ranges
  • Be proficient in measuring and fitting our products
  • Feel confident about visiting customers at their home

Training takes place at the Hillarys Home. This custom-built facility is a fully furnished replica of a typical customer’s property, so you’ll have a chance to learn the role in the type of environment you’ll be working in.

There’s also a practical area featuring a wide range of window types and lintels, where you’ll practice using the equipment and become comfortable fitting blinds and curtains.

Further training is provided to hone your skills once your business is running and later on you can choose to train to offer more products from our ranges.
