Why Choose The  Psychological Color Expert™ Course?

u

Other courses provide generic color information you can dig up online...

The Psychological Color Expert™ course isn’t full of regurgitated color knowledge. From the first module to the last, it offers original content and highly-specific instruction that you can’t find anywhere else.

u

Other courses are taught by those who have done little or no color specification themselves.

The Psychological Color Expert™ course is taught by one of the top paint color experts in the country whose work has been featured in dozens of national print and online outlets. Check out her portfolio here.

u

Other courses use the work of others, culled from other designers, pinterest, and other online sources.

The Psychological Color Expert™ course provides ONLY real-life examples of paint color palettes specified by the trainer herself, so you have confidence that the recommendations you make aren’t based on inaccurate representations of color that have been filtered, edited, or altered in some way.

u

Other courses lack structure, give you lists of “most popular” colors put out by the paint companies, and don’t provide the tools you need to launch your business.

Psychological Color Expert™ is the only course that includes a proven step-by-step process, specific and curated colors in both Benjamin Moore® and Sherwin-Williams® for every situation, and advanced professional tools so that you can immediately conduct consultations confidently.

u

Other color courses are once and done. Once you complete the course, you’ll never hear from your trainer again (unless it’s to sell you a different course)!

The Psychological Color Expert™ course provides a free year of ongoing support and assistance with your paint color questions in a private Facebook group where Kristie interacts on a regular basis.
