Accreditation and CE Provider Programs by

Real Estate Staging Association

(for Education Providers)

The RESA Accreditation and CE Provider Programs are a quality assurance process under which a real estate staging education provider or school has submitted their course materials and operations to be examined by an independent third-party, RESA, to determine if applicable standards are met. Should the educational provider meet the RESA standards, the provider receives an accredited status for CORE Education and Approved Provider status for CE Education from RESA. 

The Real Estate Staging Association®, RESA®, is the trade association for stagers. Members are dedicated to advancing professionalism, excellence, and legitimacy in the home staging and redesign industry. Self-regulation is an important component of RESA® and the real estate staging industry. RESA has developed a legitimate accreditation program for real estate staging education providers. RESA reviews the provider's policies, procedures, class materials and fiscal soundness in order to ensure that the provider meets or exceeds RESA's industry standards.


To review Staging Education provider programs as well as administrative procedures to ensure they meet a standard of educational requirements determined by RESA.
