Bathroom and kitchen design courses at Mascari training in the Midlands

Renée Mascari founded The KBB School of Design in 2002, developing and writing kitchen design courses.

We are a PI ABC accredited centre, meaning we can deliver the Ofqual QCF Level 3 qualification in the Principles of Kitchen Design course. This is a new qualification for aspiring or experienced kitchen designers.

In addition, Renée also delivers KBB National Training Group (KBBNTG) approved courses in kitchen design.

The kitchen design course is designed to upskill the existing workforce as well as introduce new entrants into the industry. If you are completely new to the kitchen industry, the courses and training we deliver will give you a real insight into the industry and set you up for your new career. If you are currently working as a kitchen designer, you will progress your development and learn new skills.

If you have any questions about the kitchen design course you can give us a call, send us an email or simply text us on 07879 634 598!

If you are unsure as to whether the design course is for you, have a look at some recent testimonials and see what others have had to say.
