CSP® Home Staging Certification Course

Invaluable Hands–On Learning

Apply in a real-world, practical way what is learned in the classroom is one of the hallmarks of CSP® training. On day three of the intensive CSP® staging training program, participants stage an actual property currently on the market as part of their curriculum. In addition, before and after photos of the rooms they stage can be used to start their own portfolios.

“The CSP® course was very informative, professional, energetically presented; a positive experience. The staging of the house on day three was eye–opening and was very good hands–on learning.”

~ Tracey Flanagan, CSP – Green Village, NJ

“The CSP® program was very comprehensive, from ideas about starting your own business and the requirements to hands on experience in staging a home that was on the market. It was a terrific program that covered the process, activities and knowledge requires becoming a CSP®. The group sessions and particularly the real staging exercise on Day 3 gave me, a novice, a real understanding of what is involved.”

~ Jennifer D’Angelo, CCSP – Oakville, ON

Industry Leading Instructors

All instructors own and operate successful staging businesses, bringing their experience and talent to the classroom.

“My instructor was wonderful. He was very informative and entertaining and definitely on top of his game. I was more than satisfied with the course and think CSP® has really put together a first rate program with excellent support material. If I had any reservations about how effective staging could actually be, they disappeared the third day when a Fonthill property was transformed by five students (under the instructor’s watchful eye, of course) and went from granny–ish to stylish. It was then I became a true convert and saw the possibilities in the profession.”

~ Lynn Jenkins, CCSP® – St. Catharines, ON

“I had the pleasure of being a trainee in an intensive three–day staging workshop with Nairn Friemann in New York City. Being an interior designer for 37 years, and practicing in both the residential and commercial areas, it is usually me who plays “teacher” rather than student. I must confess that I have more often than not been bored and disappointed in such events. My usual “M.O.” is to make excuses and leave early. But Nairn’s class was a very different experience. She was a serious, committed, engaging teacher, who clearly is at the top of her game in the Staging industry. She exhibited interest in each of her students, and gave individual guidance. I took prolific notes, and soon realized how much I could learn from her. She has my full respect, appreciation and admiration.”

~ Alice Silverman, CSP® – North Salem, NY


Comprehensive Content

The CSP® program delivers the art and science of professional staging AND business start-up, complete with how to market and attract clients in today’s real estate market and economy.

“This class boosted my spirits and gave me the confidence I needed to get out there. I have been spending so much time organizing and making sure everything is perfect before starting but the class gave me the extra shove to DO IT! Organization was great, material was terrific, and the resource manual is fantastic. It is well worth the money! Great information; knowledge shared was wonderful; great group of people and the instructor was very knowledgeable, patient and informative.”

~ Patricia Kay McAlpin, CSP® – Rome, GA

“I can assure you when it comes to running a profitable staging business the information provided to CSP’s is imperative – and this information is totally lacking from other courses I have taken. Furthermore, after being in business for several years and talking with dozens and dozens of other women in this industry at national conventions, redesign work is limited and does not pay the bills… that is why so many of us have gone into staging. For the price you pay, you get so much more information and connections being a CSP®… including preferred pricing with so many other companies and the list goes on. But also you get on-going help throughout your career. They have an amazing Resource Center available to you to get you up and started including marketing materials, etc. As part of the training, a lot of the redesign principles of furniture layouts, lighting, color, etc. are taught. After taking other programs out there, the CSP® Program is without a doubt the path to success!”

~ Lisa L. Dickson, CSP® – Youngstown, OH

 “Just to let you know that taking advantage of the refresher course attendance opportunity as a graduate was interesting and informative. It was a real treat to sit back and listen after conducting a few consultations and showcasing projects. Thank you for the opportunity to absorb more details and information for next to nothing ($25 a day). Kudos, for encouraging the graduates to continue attending the courses. CSP®’s continued support for alumni – including the built-in website for all graduates, access to marketing material, the opportunity to attend courses at any time and just to have someone to talk to at 1-888-STAGING – is a huge advantage that I did not fully appreciate at the time of booking the course.”

~ Lucia Tomson, CCSP® – Barrie, ON

I am new to the Home Staging business. I had originally taken another Home Staging course and received their certification. However, my experience was very disappointing…

I am an alumni of Certified Staging Professional. I would like to express my thanks to Nairn Friemann (CSP® Instructor), and CSPI™ Business Training Academy taught at Purchase College, NY for the opportunity of partaking in their three day home staging course last year.
