This program was designed for the busy professional who cannot take that much time off of work or the home maker who cannot leave her family for lengthy periods of time.  This class is designed to give you all the important elements and knowledge needed to become a Personal Stylist and Personal Shopper and is the abridged version of the 2.5 week certification program.  This class cuts to the chase and gives you a fully comprehensive education without all the fluff.  Unfortunately, you will not learn how to evaluate a closet or how to create a wardrobe look book in this class; however you can purchase the Wardrobe Consulting and Personal Styling e-Short Course for that.
