This in-depth online program is designed to get your upholstery skills launched on solid, professional footing.

This program includes 12 courses designed to build your professional skill set. At the beginning of each course, students will review a detailed video demonstration and written instructions before attempting to complete a short project. Each course includes quizzes, self-assessments, and downloadable forms. Attention is given throughout to how concepts may be translated to real work. This program is entirely online, but students will need access to a basic professional set up, including a sewing machine they can comfortably operate, and several commonly accessible project components. (See full tools and supplies list) We will discuss equipment selection throughout the program for those who are learning independently. 

Students should plan to spend approximately 8-10 hours completing each of the 12 courses.
