Interior Design

Overview

About the Level 3 Interior Design Certificate

If you have a creative flair and a passion for paint samples, a career in interior design could be perfect for you. As a practicing interior design specialist, you would be responsible for designing, decorating and furnishing indoor spaces in people’s homes, work spaces or even public venues. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then this online course is the place to start.

The engaging e-learning material begins by delving into the history of interior design. Following that, the course goes on to teach you all you need to know about design elements like space, colour, texture and scale. On top of this, you will discover how to harmoniously combine the elements of a room, how to coordinate lighting, and even how to start up your own business.

Who should study this course?

This course has been specifically designed for the aspiring interior designers among you. However, it is also worth noting that the course is suitable for those without interior design career aspirations, who want more about the practice for their own benefit.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this distance learning course, you will have gained a fundamental understanding of how the interior design industry functions. You will also be familiar with the different room and design elements that contribute to a finished project.
