NORCROSS, GA. - Enrollment opened today for the Ashworth College Home Staging Career Diploma, the newest course in our range of online programs in creative services.

A student aspiring to become a home stager needs a foundation in the basics of design and business. The Home Staging Career Diploma course covers both areas with lessons on design topics like architectural and furniture styles, color theory, lighting, storage systems, and arranging, plus business concepts like building client relationships, developing portfolios, marketing, business management, and more. The course is certified by Designer Society of America (DSA).

At the point of enrollment, Home Staging Career Diploma students will be given the option to purchase the DSA Certified Home Staging Professional (CHSP) Certification Exam at a valuable discount. Earning the CHSP designation after completing the career diploma can give graduates a professional edge by qualifying their skills according to the DSA standard. Also, upon certification, graduates earn a one-year membership with DSA at no additional cost.

“Real estate is booming again and everyone knows beautiful homes command higher dollars,” said Ashworth College Chief Academic Officer Christine Jax. “Realtors are competing for big sales and great home staging helps them do that. Creative students who can channel their love for decorating into a home staging business have real opportunities here. Our course is designed to help them quickly build their skills in design and business so they can get started.”

Career Diploma programs at Ashworth College are designed to give graduates the knowledge required to start small businesses or find entry-level employment. There are no pre-requisites for enrollment though a high school diploma or the equivalent is recommended. Students can complete a Career Diploma program in as few as four months.
