What People Say About the SDP® Course...

"I started the course with a passion for home decor and design, and no real direction on where to begin with home staging.

I am now leaving with a wealth of information and the confidence to pursue my passion with skills and motivation!"

-Kyana Idi

"With my busy lifestyle, I loved how easy it was to pick the lessons back up right where I left off. The information was so valuable and interesting to me that I soaked it up like a sponge!"

-Andra Ziebol

"As an interior designer, I thought I didn't need this course. Well I thought wrong! I've learn so much in this course, it made my staging approach more effective and productive.

My projects look better, they get installed more efficiently, and I feel much more confident offering a service that is set for success."
