While it is not necessary to be certified to be a successful redesigner or stager, it sure can't hurt, and as more people enter the field, it becomes more and more important. If you are doing both businesses simulatneously, you might want to consider double certification. Double certification will gain you equal respect in both the home staging industry and the interior redesign industry .Some people do place credence in seeing some initials after your name. Now you can achieve double certification by the #1 ranked redesign/staging trainer in the world, Barbara Jennings.
You must pass an exam and submit a portfolio for review by a panel of industry judges. Prior training in design and our basic business tutorials is highly recommended first as questions on the exam pertain to design and business practices. This is not a tutorial. To properly prepare, we suggest the following: Decor Secrets Revealed, Where There's a Wall - There's a Way, Home Staging for Profit and Rearrange It. This is a non-refundable application and processing fee only and does not include training.
NOTE: If you have or are purchasing a Diamond course from us, your certification fee is already included. Purchase this only if you have not taken one of our courses previously but wish to be certified by Barbara Jennings and our company. Thank you.
