SCHOOL FOR CERTIFICATION
||The Decorator Training Institute Online Course and Home
Study programs were written to conform
specifically to the Interior Decorator and to emphasize the elements
of Interior Design and Decoration. The teachings include the latest
information concerning state regulations of interior designers
and the practice of interior design versus the role of the interior
decorator as re-defined by Ron Renner,
founder and president of Certified
Interior Decorators International (C.I.D.).
In the early 90's, Ron conceived the idea of educating, training
and testing interior decorators for achieving certification
and for joining in fellowship with a professional organization
established exclusively for Certified Interior Decorators.
The C.I.D. Accredited Program grants certification to interior
decorators on successful completion of the C.I.D. entrance exam.
Ron Renner, in partnership with Certified Interior
Decorators International (C.I.D.), has written the training
manual which instructs students in achieving the basics of certification.
The Decorator Training Institute (D.T.I.) program is
the ONLY program licensed by Certified Interior Decorators
International (C.I.D.) to teach the principle of "certification"
through its C.I.D. Accredited Program.
"After years of having a passion for home furnishings and
a strong interest in interior design, I was fortunate to be offered
a job working in retail furniture sales. I feel the knowledge and
experience I gained working with customers and attending trade shows
was as valuable as years in a classroom, but it did not give me the
credibility a formal education would have provided. Ron Renner's Decorator
Training Institute certification program enabled me the opportunity
to become a professional Interior Decorator in a very affordable and
timely manner. This is a wonderful program for someone who has a talent
for decorating, but wants or needs to add the validity that becoming
certified offers. The C.I.D. designation and membership in the Certified
Interior Decorators International organization will open doors and
lets consumers know you are a professional they can trust. So... thank
you Mr. Renner."

Me Choose: Online Course or Home Study?
The D.T.I. program is the most informative and direct route to C.I.D.
Both programs are editions of the same Decorator Training Institute
(DTI) Program, written by Ron Renner, Founder and President of Certified
Interior Decorators International. Graduates of both courses
of study receive the same certificate of graduation and C.I.D. membership
credentials. Your choice between the two programs will be partly one
of personal preference, based on whether you prefer to work from a book
or in front of a computer screen.
||The Workbook Course
includes hands-on projects, furniture templates and an interior
design color wheel in addition to leaving you with the printed
workbook for future reference. All other things being equal, it
is the option we recommend most highly. This version of the course
provides more room for personal interaction with the instructor,
who will personally critique your work on the hands-on projects,
making the connection between book learning and practical experience.
|The Online Course
is for those who prefer online studies. You can start your studies
immediately, using the password you will receive shortly after
your credit card payment clears. The online course can be a completely
paperless option. Students tend to complete the online course
a little more quickly and grading of the final exam is immediate
because it is automated through the website. The Online Course
is IPad compatible.
