Practical Knowledge

Developed from our extensive expertise, our courses provide you with unmatched knowledge, tools, and guidance.


We’ve paid special attention to the human element of home staging — something other courses frequently gloss over.

Hands-On Experience

Theory is important, but the real value lies in applying it — in actually experiencing how your future day-to-day will look.

Stage a Successful Career

Running a home staging business requires more than passion and an eye for interior design. There’s a great deal of practical knowledge involved, as well. Unfortunately, most home staging courses fall short.

They don’t teach essential things like client relationships, what the day-to-day looks like, or provide any real-world experience. Confident Minds Academy is taking a different approach to training the next generation of home stagers.

Our intelligently designed home staging course shows you exactly what to expect from a career in home staging.

But that’s not all we teach. You’ll learn about all the less exciting parts of entrepreneurship, including how to avoid issues with the Canada Revenue Agency come tax time, business administration tips, and more.

Better yet, if you sign up for our in-person course, you’ll get direct experience with a home staging professional to see how everything works firsthand.

Confident Minds Academy gives you everything you need to break into the home staging profession — with no roadblocks to hold you back.
