To be hired as a full-time household worker, you should have a
high school diploma or its equivalent. Classes you may find
beneficial to take include English to increase your communication
skills and ability to follow directions and family and consumer
science or home economics classes. If you are interested in a
certain area of work, take classes that will increase your skills
in those areas. For example, someone interested in lawn care and
property maintenance might take horticulture or biology classes to
learn about plant life, and shop classes to learn how to use
various tools. Someone interested in child care might take classes
concentrating on child development and health. No matter what your
area of interest, however, basic math classes will be useful. If
your goal is to rise to a position such as home housekeeper or to
own a cleaning business, you should also take accounting and
business classes to help you prepare for the bookkeeping and other
business aspects of the work.
