WHY TAKE A STAGING COURSE:

A Staging Training Course equips its graduates with a foundation for success that will help shorten the time it takes to be successful.  Understanding how to furnish or rearrange a room does not provide you with a business foundation.  Rather than struggle to figure out how to price your services, how to prepare consultations and proposals, how to grow your business long term, a Staging course provides that for you.  Those taught by experienced and successful Stagers are the ones we like to recommend as you cannot teach what you do not know.  If you would like your course listed on this page, please email [email protected].

The Staging Studio

One big mistake Home Stagers make is focusing on “How can I GET clients to pay me for my work?” Instead, shift your focus to GIVING your clients a solution to their problem. So how do you even know what the problem is? Once you are trained using proven design principles, you will effortlessly “diagnose” their problem. You will be the medicine to their pain!

EUROPE APPROVED COURSES:

Germany

DGHR training – continuous education for successful Home Staging Professionals

The DGHR is Germany's only Government approved Professional Association of Home Stagers. Offering the first staging training program in German speaking countries the seminars characterize since 2010 what our members stand for: quality, up-to-date knowledge, and a promise to our clients of a high level of professional conduct underlined by a strict code of ethics, in short: a representation of our profession to the very highest standards.

Believing that a solid education is one of the most important corner stones to success, the DGHR prides itself on equipping its participants and members with well-rounded staging knowledge in all areas: from home staging techniques, business principles, the latest legal requirements to helping with the first steps by offering mentoring and practical work experience possibilities.

As we believe that one option does not always fits every participant best, we offer several possibilities to achieve 4 types of certification: from Chamber of commerce certification to DGHR Master Professional Titles. We are extremely proud to be part of the IAHSP world and to have gained IAHSP approval for our training program.

Italy

    HOME|Philosophy, was established with the stated mission of giving back dignity to the concept of Home, very often forgotten or disregarded in the Italian residential real estate market.

At HOME|Philosophy we believe in our mission so strongly that we have established a training and education division: HOME|Philosophy Academy, a project that is ambitious as well as solid: its credibility is based on highly professional trainers who are daily striving for excellence both in their performance and in the quality of course contents and materials.

Established in September 2015, HOME|Philosophy Academy (Milan, Italy) has based its mission on permanent education and continuous training, unique in this industry, to provide trainees, after completing the Home Staging course, with some deep and thorough knowledge on how to add value to their activity.

Netherlands

Picture & Space was established by Nicolet Groen in 2011. Nicolet created a proven way to build a sustainable Home Staging business in the Netherlands by combing Staging and Photography. Her vision: Not every house needs full staging, but all properties need photography, photography combined with advice on how to prepare the home before showings. That approach led to multiple contracts with real estate agents that let her take care of the marketing assets of all their listings: Since 2007, Nicolet has staged and photographed over 2000 properties.
During three full days of training in groups of max five persons. Nicolet shares all her knowledge regarding home staging, real estate photography, entrepreneurship, branding, and marketing.  In between each class, there is a week for homework assignments: practicing Home Staging, writing a report, taking pictures, editing in Photoshop, writing a business plan and start exploring branding and marketing to attract clients.
All the aspects to start a successful Home Staging business are covered. But, having the tools is one thing, taking it into action is the moment when doubt and questions arise. That's why every student receives support and feedback up to one year after graduation.
