Home stagers, you asked for it, we listened and we delivered! RESA is partnering with several training providers and top stagers in North America to deliver the first ever continuing education program for all stagers.
Continuing education is a crucial aspect of every profession. As with every profession, seeking education after your core training is how you keep up on trends, learn new skills and keep educated on the changing industry. Most professions have a continuing education program, designations, certifications etc. These concepts create the “infrastructure” for all industries. Programs like this one and the RESA-PROTM designation provides another “leg” to our industries infrastructure and credibility.
The program consists of staging principles and business skills.
You do not have to be a member of RESA to take these classes.
If you have earned the RESA-PROTM designation, these classes count towards your continuing education requirements.
Courses are affordable, most online in E-book, Power Points, Webinars, and Tele-seminars.
We are adding on more courses every month.
