An amazing experience. My teacher Connie taught me so much. Her professionalism, knowledge and her years of decorating experience allowed me to fully grasp the materials and concepts. I can’t wait to take another class. Connie is a wonderful teacher and a lovely person too!

I had the privilege of training with Carol Bass in Nashville several years ago. It was a wonderful experience offering quite a bit of knowledge in a short period of time. I am now a trainer myself with the DSA and am honored to be part of this group of professionals. The DSA offers classes in all corners of the country, so there is certainly one near anyone interested. Well worth the time and investment.

Received an estimate
I had the privilege of having Sandra Racz as my instructor for my DSA courses. She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable with her many years of being in the business, so could easily relate real situations that she encountered along with the course material, making it very relateable. There was a great deal of material we had to cover, as well as the hands on experience applying the course material to a real home, but while moving quickly and efficiently, I left the week feeling that I had learned SO much and excited to apply all I had learned to starting my own business! I highly recommend taking the class from Sandra!

I was a student in the The-DSA
Good morning Carol, Sheila and I want to thank you so much for an incredible week . It is obvious that your rich knowledge of design concepts, colors and patterns is only exceeded by your passion to share what you know with your DSA students. My sister and I find ourselves fully equipped to create a business out of the education taught in the academy. The opportunity we had to work "hands on” in real homes was invaluable. You encouraged us with your wit and wisdom making the week of intense information overload, a doable task if we apply ourselves to the principles learned and stay focused on our personal goals and talents that brought us to the class. Thank you Carol for not only being our teacher but becoming our mentor and friend. Sheryl Ramey class of Oct 2016

Kris is a great teacher! She does a wonderful job at giving you hands on experience! She is patient and lets you try all sorts of options and helps you process what you are trying outloud. Her class is a great way to build confidence and gain experience!

I received training/certification from this company.
In November of 2015 I received training/certification from Sandra Racz with The DSA for Decorating, Home Staging and Redesign. Sandra was well prepared each day for the classroom teaching sessions with a wealth of knowledge and information that was clearly and concisely presented. She was also most patient with the litany of questions that followed each session from others in the classroom who are new to the business, but also those of us who have established businesses and have been at it for several years. In addition, her hands-on work was exceptional. (We actually staged one home and redesigned another during the course of the week.) She was the perfect combination of teacher, instructor and guide, being careful not to do the work for us so that it was truly a learning experience. What I learned from working under Sandra for a week has given me powerful tools to take my business to the next level. In addition, she is truly delightful! I highly recommend her and The DSA.

I work for the professional
I really enjoyed my experience taking the certifications through the Decorating and Staging Academy. I thought the course was well thought out and prepared. I learned new things about the industry that I did not know before. Great insight and knowledge was provided, as well as great recommendations for products, apps, websites and other resources to use in my future business endeavors.

The Decorating and Staging Academy’s annual Deco-Zone, held during Atlanta’s AmericasMart in July, has become a not-to-be-missed annual event. Here’s why: ➢Education and Learning from top-notch industry leaders ➢Relevant workshops that enhance and enlighten ➢The DSA Trainers & Guest Speakers are: interesting, fun, funny, creative, on-trend, inspiring, motivating. ➢Their Seminars enhance our skills and add value and insight that fine-tunes and refreshes the services we offer. ➢We leave feeling more empowered ➢Networking: The DecoZone gives us this wonderful opportunity to: oNetwork with each other face-to-face oReunite with ‘old’ friends / make new friendships oBuild new connections, share ideas/interests. oEstablish a very important support system (esp for the Solopreneur Stager/Decorator) ➢Shopping AmericasMart: We learned as we shopped; the trends, styles, colors, manufacturers, and wholesalers. I’m very fortunate (and proud) to be DSA-trained and mentored. I am in awe of their endless energy and the innovative educational opportunities they create that keep us learning, growing, interested, and connected in this wonderful industry. The "DSA" - an acronym for 'Dedicated to the Success of All' … because they are. Thanks for all you do to help us succeed. : ) Allie Milus BLOOM That ROOM! Home Staging

The DSA professional training is excellent. I have attended the past 2 years of the Deco-Zone during Atlanta's AmericasMart in July and have attended the training sessions that the DSA has provided at minimal cost. I would encourage other Home Stagers and Redesigners to learn about the opportunities available through the DSA.

I had the pleasure of attending my 2nd DecoZone conference in July of 2015. Each time I've been amazed at the wealth of valuable information presented. It is truly an enriching and educational experience, worth the investment many times over. The DSA trainers and guest speakers hold nothing back and pour their all into empowering the attendees to reach new levels of success in their businesses.
