Course Description

The certificate is designed to give you the skills you need to work in the industry as a professional.

What do interior decorators do?

While interior designers plan structural spaces and suggest alterations to the structure and dimensions of them, interior decorators mainly focus on decorating the space to meet the functional and aesthetic requirements of the people using it.
An interior decorator can undertake projects that include arranging the basic layout of spaces within a building as well as projects that require an understanding of technical issues such as acoustics, lighting and even temperature and location.
You could work in many different types of spaces, such as heritage buildings, corporate spaces, apartments, houses and other types of personal and professional environments. This productive and progressive course also provides pathways to further study in design.
