The Academy of Interior Design offers a five day Interior Design Course. The Interior Design field has always been a field that has required a four year degree or at least that has always been believed. There are two year certificates offered out there that require a student to enroll in a college and attend class. But what if there is no time to attend a formal college? What if there was an Interior Design certification that can be done in 5 days? How can that be? Well, there is.

After many hours of conceptualizing, Kim Kappelusch and Wanda Colon came up with a five day business in a box concept for Interior Design. Kim's Academy of Home Staging and Design has been instructing a proven and successful five and six day Home Staging course for nearly 10 years and decided to use the same concept to develop the Interior Design Certification, and the course was born.

It is possible to learn Interior design in five days and even learn how to start your own business. Hands on acumen is the key. The Academy of Interior Design has rolled out a five day course that will be hands on instruction and individual assistance that is like no other Course.
