Certified Color Specialist (CCD)

 This CCS course is designed for painters, showroom personnel, home stagers and others that will benefit from a basic, streamlined course in architectural color without the color design elements.

Many times clients are stressed out about color, or just need some guidance. As the painter you may be leaving a lot of money on the table if you're not in the position to guide them! Instead of referring the color decisions to another color professional, use your skills as a Certified Color Specialist to close the gap and help your client make the correct decisions.
