Liz Bamber-Smith, Liz Bamber Smith Interiors

"Good value for money. An extremely useful course, the videos and audio brought it to life and I always received swift replies from Tutors to my questions. I'm very much looking forward to beginning my home staging business. Thank you!" 

Melissa Fenton, MHInteriors

"I really enjoyed the CHSSP course. After teaching for 18 years I took the opportunity to take redundancy and train for a new career.  The flexibility of the course has enabled me to complete it in my own time frame. Super quick answers to questions every time meant that nothing held me up.  I feel I have learnt a lot in a relatively short space of time."  

Helen Winter, Coral Interiors

"The course was challenging and contained a lot of information, it was paced very well, getting progressively harder by each module. I thoroughly enjoyed the study and the exercises and feel ready and raring to go with my new business. I feel this will be a good complement to my Interior Design Diploma."  

Kirsten Wilson, Kirsten Wilson Design

"After finishing this (CHSSP) course, I can honestly say that I feel extremely confident with going forward as a home stager. Lots of time, effort and thought has gone into its design, and I really appreciate all of the time put into it so that I and many others can learn from such an educational course."
