Educational Programs

Do It for Achievement will through its trademark develop throughout 2018 thoroughly-vetted and accredited courses facilitated by New York School of Design (NYSID), one of the most highly rated design schools in the country.  The purpose of these courses is to improve interior designers business practices and sustain their business viability.

Courses will include a first-of-its-kind online self-assessment tool, similar to a questionnaire or survey that will determine the strengths and weaknesses of a designer’s business, its challenges, and the possible educational remedies through subsequent courses on business best-practices, finance & business economics and marketing. The courses will be filed by NYSID for accreditation by the American Institute of Architects for LU (Learning Units) credits, and with the Interior Design Council for Continuing Education CEU credits.  New York School of Interior Design is an accredited provider for continuing education with both organizations, and with the State of New York.  In late 2018, the courses will become part of the NYSID Institute for Continuing and Professional Studies (ICPS).
