Distance Learning Certificate in Display and Visual Merchandising

This course is designed to enable those who may not be in a position to attend a college based BDS course to attain a basic range of display/visual merchandising (VM) skills. It covers elements of company image, balance, layout, production, props, lighting, interiors and scale drawing. In addition there are practical exercises to hone your all important hands-on abilities. The course can be progressed in your own time and at your own pace with a tutor assigned to you for support when required. On successful completion of the course you will be awarded a certificate accredited by the BDS. This will be a valuable addition to your CV whether you are already working in the industry, looking for an extra qualification, or are keen to obtain a position in VM for the first time.
