For many, traditional training can be costly and time consuming.

It may not be possible for you to enroll in design school fulltime or to travel to a training venue in another city. You may have responsibilities at home or in the workplace that make it difficult for you to find long blocks of time to learn new skills or up your knowledge in a subject. You want to invest in your passion or career, but your funds are limited.

Without a solution for affordable, accessible training, your career may never get off the ground or your existing career may get derailed at any time. This is so disappointing for all the creatives out there that would be excellent kitchen designers.
