Chris Crouch

Course: Visual Merchandising: Styling for Retail and Display

I wanted to expand my horizons and help me with my new business venture and the RMIT Visual merchandising course has such a good reputation.
A short course is the perfect start to try something new or challenge yourself, so I would highly recommend it, especially Visual Merchandising if that interests you.

I loved the class had a wide range of students from all areas of interest and the course catered to everyone from beginners like me to those wanting to make Visual Merchandising a career.

These are some of our expert facilitators.
