The five-day course provides three days of hands-on redesign in clients' homes where you get the confidence and experience to do redesign yourself. A fourth day covers all the theory for both redesign and real estate staging. And a fifth day is spent on the sales and marketing aspects of your business for both redesign and real estate staging.

What About When the Course is Over?
And the training doesn't stop when the course ends. After the course, I am available to you by phone or email to answer any questions you may have. You may also take the course again for free if you wish (some restrictions apply). Also, the other redesigners who belong to the CRDA and IRIS (depending on which organization you join) are there for you. There is a wealth of information and experience in these associations. As a certified coach, I also include two free 1/2-hour coaching sessions to help you get your business off the ground. I am here to help you with all aspects of your business both during and after the course.
