Specialist Certificate: Residential Organizing

2 Course items

Ready to dive deeper into the residential world of organizing? The Residential Organizing track will strengthen your foundation in residential organizing by means of three basic class divisions. Choosing classes from each division will equip the residential organizer with a well-rounded diversity of knowledge: 
  • The Core classes focus on factors effecting the development and management of your business. 
  • The Client Interaction classes focus on ways in which you inter-personally relate to your clients through recognition and boundaries and help you to connect with your clients to provide a teaching environment. 
  • The Skills classes offer a variety of subjects to sharpen already present skill-sets or to add new tools to your toolbox to expand your marketability.
