Certified Residential Interior Designer

$1,995.00 (USD)


This program will educate you on what our contemporary design aesthetic owes to the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, as you will explore historical design styles that influence design choices today.

Investigate the elements of interior design such as materials, color, textiles, lighting, and accessories, and discover how to combine these elements to create the type of atmosphere that your clients desire.

This program will provide you with insight on running your own design business and teach you the fundamentals and ethical practices involved in becoming a Residential Interior Designer. It will offer helpful information on establishing your business, networking with contractors and vendors, marketing, meeting with clients, and managing projects in an ethical and professional way. It will also provide you with skills that will prepare you to seek out clients and help them transform their interiors into satisfying spaces. 

The program offers useful documents and exercises to help you practice and develop your skills. For instance, you can compile the knowledge you gain throughout the course to create a floor plan and a complete design concept for a family room in your first big project. By the end of the program, you can use your design concepts in a profile to present to potential clients.

Upon the completion of this program, you can take the Residential Interior Designer Exam (R.I.D.E.) through the Designer Society of America, or DSA. Once you achieve certification, you can qualify for a free one-year DSA membership, and you may be able to participate in an optional 40-hour internship, if you meet certain eligibility requirements.

Upon registering, you receive six months to complete this program.
