Welcome to our free home staging course!
It’s wonderful to have you and I know you’re going to get a lot out of this experience. After 12 years in the world of home staging certification and training, I’ve decided to make this course material completely free for you to study. You can learn home staging and all about starting your business right here on this site. If you want to help support the site, you can use the PayPal Donate button located on each page.
I used to sell material like this, and while the courses at my previous staging school were quite affordable, I wanted to take it a step further as a way of paying it forward. Please note: You’ll find affiliate links on the site, but the products and services I recommend are the ones I’ve used over the years and can say wholeheartedly that they are products and services that I would recommend to my own best friend. Home staging has been good to me over the years and I hope I can help you with this material.
Plus, when you’re all finished you’ll have the option of getting your certification (CHS) — this is not something that is necessary, but if you’d like your work reviewed and you want the certification, it is available. Either way, you’ll be ready to tackle clients’ projects. If you’re a Realtor or a homeowner just wanted to learn the home staging tips techniques, all of that information will be in the beginning of the course.
OK, I have promised you a fluff-free zone and that is what I intend to deliver! We’re going to get right into it after a quick word about how the course is set up.
A quick word on how the course works. You’ll move through the material at your own pace. When you reach the end of a section, you’ll find some questions and exercises that are designed to lock in your knowledge and build up your skills and confidence. You do not have to complete these assignments, but it will help you as you go along. And the assignments are fun.
At the end of the home staging course you’ll find a final exam. The exam will give you some staged rooms that you can use for your portfolio. You can use rooms in your own home, or use a family member’s home, or you can use rooms in a friend’s house, any space where you can practice staging and shoot your work.
The exam is meant as a practice test for you to get some hands-on work experience and shoot some before and after photos. When you reach the end of the course material, you’ll see the info about signing up for the certification if you so desire. Again, this is in no way meant as a way to pressure you into signing up for the certificate. You can read my thoughts on home staging certification and see that there are pros and cons; it isn’t a necessity, but it might be something you’d like to have.
Let’s get going!
