I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this interior design course to anyone. Whether a beginner or someone looking to refine their skills in interior design, this course can help you!
Before starting this course I had completed a short interior design course with another institute, which covered the basics of choosing colours and window dressings. After I finished the course I thought I had a very broad knowledge of the subject, until I started the Interior Design Academy Course.
I now know not only about colour, layout, lighting and furniture, etc, but also have the skills needed to run the management and quoting side of an interior design business.
Now that I have my diploma from the Academy I feel empowered and able to make decisions about interiors with confidence. Also, having my diploma has allowed friends and family to feel at ease when I am helping them make decisions regarding their homes and holiday properties, knowing that I have taken the time to complete my diploma and understand all aspects of interior design.
I can’t give enough praise and thanks to the tutors and administrative staff that work for The Interior Design Academy. Whenever I had a query and rang or emailed the office, the staff were friendly and more than helpful, giving me the information I needed and even sending me samples of work so that I could better understand what was expected of me.
All the tutors used by the Academy are industry professionals. My tutor Simon Savage, who is a practicing interior designer, gave me excellent and in-depth feedback, as well as lots of ideas and encouragement to help me reach a higher standard.
In the tutorials, there is even a section where Academy tutors answer questions about what training they had to complete, how much to charge clients and many other topics that helped me greatly.
Having now completed the Professional Interior Design Course, I am looking forward to working weekends helping family and friends re-decorate and in the near future some paid clients as well. Eventually, I am hope this will become my full-time occupation so that I can make a living out of something I love doing.
