DESIGN YOUR OWN FUTURE INTERIOR CREATIVE SKILLS CAN BE USED IN MANY WAYS
A GOOD interior designer or decorator uses artistic skills to structure creative spaces and is always in demand.
If you love designing and decorating, have an eye for detail and are a people person, you may want to look at a Certificate IV in Interior Decoration and the Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration at Open Colleges Australia.
Both are flexible courses, running from 24 to 30 months, and cover all aspects of design and decorating from conceptual sketching to colour schemes, furnishing, styling, lighting, CAD training and 3D modelling, building and construc- tion techniques. The theory and history of colour and design and architectural styles are also covered.
After a Certificate IV, students can complete the diploma level if they want further skills for an interior design role. Anyone can get in – straight after year 12, mums and dads re-entering the work force, those looking to upskill and others.
Interior design and decorating offer many job opportunities.
