Smart Redesign


So What Is It Going to Cost

to train at the Smart School of Redesign/Training?

What you really have to ask yourself is
“How much are your dreams worth”?

When you compare business start-up costs and other occupational training programs that teach you a new skill but DON’T teach you how to turn that skill into a successful business or getting a college degree in interior design, for a potential investment of $40,000 or more (not to mention four years of your life), Smart Redesign/ Home Staging training can be considered a real bargain! For a FRACTION of the price of other programs, you can be certified and ready to get started as a “Specialist” almost immediately following class.
