  • I just completed the Wedding Planner course through Trendimi. I would recommend this site to anyone for any course! Not only was the information pertaining to the wedding planning itself very detailed and thorough, it also gave great information in detail about how to run a small business. I've been running a small business for over a year, and while I am already implementing many of the strategies suggested in this course, I found many of the detailed suggestions to be extraordinarily helpful. Thank you for all of the fabulous information. I'll be sure to send others your way.

There are many visual examples such as videos, pictures and illustrations. I am very happy with the courses and my family, friends and co-workers all agree that my Makeup Artistry, Personal Image and Personal Shopping skills have improved since completing the courses.

  • "I've always been interested in Interior Design but didn't know where or how I should start learning. When I saw your course for Interior Design it looked like the perfect solution! I learned SOO much! I have a good eye for designing but didn't know how to use it. Everything I know about interior design is pretty much from your course! It was so informative! I now feel like I'm equipped to go. I loved how organized and thorough the course was, and it was really nice having everything in various modules according to the topics. I now feel like I’m equipped to go and start my own business after a little practice"
