Welcome to The International Institute of Home Staging’s™ career defining
Having experience in home staging is awesome, but without understanding how to manage your mindset, develop your marketing and sales skills, deeply understanding what it takes to run a business and so much more, taking the next step to a highly paid career in home staging might be too hard.
The most successful home stagers make ongoing learning and development a key priority throughout their career.
Home staging is not something that is taught at University or College. But, this does not mean that you don’t need specialized education to become successful
Home staging is so much more than the physical act of staging a property, which is why home staging is so different to anything that is currently being taught in traditional education systems.
How do you guarantee home staging success?
You see, you can have loads of creative talent, energy to burn, desire to succeed, lots of beautiful furniture but STILL not get the result you want.
You didn’t do anything wrong…but there could be a major part that most people miss.
You know that home staging is the right career path for you, and you really want to make it work.
You want to build your own home staging business, or help someone else build theirs by becoming better.
Why will The Art of Home Staging and Advanced Home Staging & Business Development Make You Successful?
Most people only dream of the lifestyles being a home stager can bring, but you can learn how to achieve the outcome you desire.
And that’s exactly what this page is all about…
Since leaving the world of academia (Yes I was a doctor!) and focusing on my true loves of interior design, home staging and real estate I have turned my life around!
I have combined my love of education with my love for interiors, styling and real estate to create a home staging business, a home staging education program for other home stagers, a renovation formula that I present through Zadel Property Education and have been given the opportunity to write for some amazing media outlets including realestate.com, Interiors Addict, Reno Addict and many more!
If you are like me and have decided to change your career goal even though you already have a job, The International Institute of Home Staging™ is the place for you to develop and grow your new career!
Here is a snippet of what is covered in this course…
…and sooooooo much more!
The courses at the International Institute of Home Staging™ are written by Naomi Findlay. Along with other home staging professionals, Naomi assesses the course work completed by each and every student and personally provides support, advice and specific feedback to each student.
Naomi started her highly successful Australia-based home staging business, Silk Home Staging & Styling™ eight years ago. She is also the founder and principle of the International Institute of Home Staging™ where she has combined her skills in both home staging and awarded expertise in tertiary education.
Naomi tours Australia with the Zadel Property team, teaching her Rapid Renovation Formula and Space Medicine. Naomi has also received numerous teaching awards from the University of Newcastle and the Australian College of Education, as well as being nominated for a national award with the Australian Teaching and Learning Council.
And, she has successfully developed the largest home staging conference in the Southern Hemisphere and was voted one of the Top 5 home stagers in the world in 2015.
The Art of Home Staging and Advanced Home Staging & Business Development has essential skill development modules that will provide you with expert knowledge about how to professionally stage homes and how to run your own home staging business. The twenty two units that can be completed on your own time, include: Art of Home Staging..
Advanced Home Staging and Business Development Course...
Everything about this course is available digitally, which means you can access The Art of Home Staging and Advanced Home Staging & Business Development, at any time, anywhere in the world. The material in this course has been created to make it as easy as possible to go back to look at past content, to revise for assessments and, of course, to learn more about home staging and managing a home staging business! At the end of each unit, an assessment must be completed and passed in order for the student to graduate the course. The Art of Home Staging and Advanced Home Staging & Business Development is completely customizable in terms of how each student completes and submits their work. The International Institute of Home Staging™ is happy to work with each student and find the best way for the student to complete the course most effectively. Plus, you will become part of the International Institute of Home Staging™ community, which comes in various forms such as membership, events and other benefits that are exclusive to students of the International Institute of Home Staging™.
The courses are delivered online and all assessments are required to be submitted online.
A course certificate is issued and emailed at the completion of each course
Each course and each unit are self-paced. This means that the hours it takes to complete each course and module is unique to each student and their situation.
For instance, some students spend 10 hours a week and finish the course in six weeks. Other students may take a month to complete a module, and that is completely fine.
Assessment tasks are scattered throughout the course, with a major work to be completed at the end of the course. All assessment items need to be passed in order to pass the course. This course does not offer any electives. On submission of assessments, a confirmation email will be sent within 48 hours of IIHS™ receiving the submission.
The next unit of work will be sent out within five working days and the feedback and results of the assessment will be available within two working weeks of the submission.
For each of the modules you will receive a workbook. This workbook is downloaded as a PDF guide for you. Depending on the computer technology available to you, you can submit your work on the easiest form for you. Most students use the workbook as a guide and submit their work in various ways, including
1. Printing the workbooks and completing it in hard copy, either returning it via scanning or emailing
2. Using PDF software to complete the work within the downloaded file.
3. Requesting a word document version of the workbook to complete.
4. Most students simply create a document using Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Pages or Keynote that contains their work and email it back as a PDF to IIHS™ for assessment.
The format of work submitted to IIHS™ is up to each student. The International Institute of Home Staging™ is happy to work with students in the medium they prefer as long as the work is well presented and of a high standard.

If You DIY Home Staging and Don’t Plan to Develop Your Skills You Risk Wasting Your Time and Money (and your clients)
Because you are learning about what it takes to follow your dreams
The same idea applies for home staging!
At The International Institute of Home Staging™ I’ve already done all the hard work! I have developed a program that works, and I know it works because I have documented all of my mistakes and figured out what works!
The Art of Home Staging and Advanced Home Staging & Business Development was created so you CAN LIVE OUT YOUR CAREER GOALS and become a successful home stager.
Normally to work with me to learn how to become a professional home stager and successfully manage your business it would cost many thousands of dollars in tuition fees, countless face to face hours with me in Australia and the costs that comes with that (travel and accommodation being the biggest)...
Think of this as one of the best investments you will make in your life!
Just wanted to say how much we are enjoying reading through all of our Modules. We are learning so much and find the course content well structured. I think the assessments are really helping us grasp what is being taught. Just wanted to give a shout out to Naomi for always being available to answer our many questions and we really appreciate how accommodating she is. Bring on the next Module!
