The man should be a good helper, sometimes he should be a good driver also. If he has mechanic skills, it will help to get a fat job. Sometimes the man has to do with gardening equipment.


It is good for the couple to know the system “Smart Home”. To be able to make renovations would be an asset also. There are watchdogs in some houses, which should be tended for.

It’s very useful, because in the capital of Russia there are a lot of courses of advanced studies. However, not all of them can offer you specialized trainings. Some courses have only theoretic part, but some courses have practical trainings in test apartment or house.


Such practice helps people to become skilled force. Such courses teach you not only how to give first aid, but also help to learn the rules of communication in a family. Having finished these courses, everybody gets relevant certificate. It’ll be easier to find a good job with this certificate.
