ReDesign & Home Staging Training
Professional Interior Redesign/Home Staging Course
Five Day Certificate of Completion in Interior Redesign/Home Staging
To have a career in interior design, interior decorating, or home staging, you don't need a college education, or to go to decorating school for years. You can start your business right away with a 5-day course that provides training in both interior redesign and home staging. Also called real estate staging, one-day decorating, or home arrangement, interior redesign teaches you how to do one-day interior design makeovers of a home using what people already own.
Val Sharp, founder and president of the Canadian Redesigners Association teaches this intensive program. The course provides an environment which will allow you to develop your talents and abilities in a creative, fun-filled manner. You will learn how to redesign living spaces, work with clients, and market your business in this exciting and growing field.
Did you know that we retain only 10-20% of what we read and hear, but a hefty 80% of what we experience firsthand? You will observe, and actively participate in redesigning "real" homes. You will also learn the differences between redesigning a home for people to live there, and staging a home for sale. Both use the same skills but the objectives and how you use those skills are very different.
CRDA and IRIS Certification
At the end of the course you will be able to demonstrate fundamental redesign principles and know how to use those principles for both redesign and showcasing homes for sale prior to receiving your certificate of completion. As a graduate you will have met the training requirements for membership in the Canadian Redesigners Association and Interior Redesign Industry Specialists (I.R.I.S.) in the U.S. Both organizations provide certification in redesign and home staging.

"...to preserve and renew is almost as noble as to create"
What we do is so rewarding!
The following was received after we redesigned her home during a course:
“Up until I received the call from Val, I was feeling very claustrophobic in my own home. The children’s toys were everywhere, and I felt as though we were outgrowing our home, and fast. We were looking at bigger places, but knew in our hearts that we could not afford such a step at this point in our lives, what with the never ending expense of 2 daycare arrangements, and Kevin changing careers recently. I felt very uncomfortable in my own home. What bothered me most of all, was that my time was fast approaching to host the neighbourhood dinner gathering, and I was embarassed to let anyone see my home in its current state.
Then along came Val and her class. They arrived bright and early that Friday morning and I must admit, I was a tad nervous about leaving a bunch of strangers in my home, but knew in my heart that this was going to be worth it. They consulted with me and got an idea of how we utilized (and wished to utilize) our home. They sent me off on my way and they immediately got to work.
I received a call that afternoon by an excited Val claiming that they were all done, and that they were ready for me to return to the home to check it out. I was so eager to find out what they could possibly have done to my small home with its obscure (and limiting) open-concept layout, that I left work immediately. I arrived and was in awe as I entered such a wonderful scene... My main floor looked just like a show home! It was astounding how much room they had created. They had moved around my pictures and created works of art that complimented my furniture. The toys were gone from the main floor, and down in the play room where they belonged. And best of all, they gave me back my dining room!!!! Now I don’t feel like I need to move anymore! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, Val and company! I am thankful every day for your work.
It has been about a month since the life changing day…Sure a few toys have made their way back upstairs, but when we recently hosted my daughter’s birthday party at our home, the toys were easily moved downstairs, the dining room was a life saver, and the family room in the front of the home was so warm and inviting to everyone that attended.
I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!”
