Most home buying decisions are made within seconds of stepping through the front door. Professional home stagers prepare property for resale by setting the scene throughout the house to create immediate buyer interest, thereby increasing the chances for a more timely and profitable sale. 3-day course provides the foundation for those wanting to start a career or own a business in real estate property staging. The Certified Staging Professional program is a blend of property staging processes, interior redesign techniques, along with business, marketing and communication for effectively staging a house for sale. The CSP® program is intensive and covers comprehensive instruction in the steps and information necessary to become a successful real estate stager. The fee includes a 400-page manual and an on-site, hands-on work experience in a property for sale. To attain the CSP designation, students must score 75% or above on two open-book, take-home tests. (If 75% is not attained, one retest is permitted within 30 days after the end of class.) For more information about CSP® certification, go to www.csptraining.com
