Educational Requirements
for Designers

Starting a career in the design & decorating industry is much easier than you might think! Although there are degree programs available for a variety of design fields, you actually don’t need to have a degree to work as a professional decorator. With professional training from an online certification course, you’ll have all of the skills, knowledge, and tools you need to provide clients with beautiful design concepts.

QC’s courses are designed to provide hands-on training and assignments that have you work through real-world scenarios. You’ll learn how to create, present, and implement designs based on your clients’ needs. Each course consists of full business training that teaches how to start your own business, from marketing and pricing your services to working with clients.
