You will gain a solid grounding in the subject of interior design and decoration, more than enough to enable you to consider taking on small commissions or to advise friends and family; and the flexibility of being able to continue to the more comprehensive Diploma Course should you wish to do so at a later date.
However, you don't need to study the Online Interior Decorator Course before enrolling on the Online Interior Design Diploma Course: they are both "stand alone" courses. You should nevertheless be aware that no credits from the Interior Decorator Course transfer to the Diploma Course.
The course is officially known as the Associate Diploma Course. See the educational objectives of this course.
