In addition, as of 2016 she is an approved trainer through the Association of Design Education. If you have the desire to work as a professional or simply want to increase your knowledge for your own personal use, Patsy’s Certified Color Consultant course is for you!
“As a ‘True Colour Expert’ trained under Maria Killam, I was eager to expand my knowledge and grow my business as a color consultant. In researching the available opportunities, I came across your training class and was happy to learn that your course was in my own backyard! I eagerly signed up to attend.
After two days of intensive training, I want you to know your class on color exceeded my expectations! It was extremely informative to learn how the new Sherwin-Williams fan deck relates to the color wheel and how to use it when selecting colors. Not only did we do a deep dive into the Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore fan decks, but you offered on-site interior and exterior color consultations with two of your clients in order to gain a better understanding of the process – invaluable! Last, but not least, you generously shared your knowledge and experience in starting up a color consulting business as well as your personal files, forms and procedures – a true ‘nuts and bolts’ course!
I am so pleased with the training I received! It was a wonderful investment, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have taken your class. Color me thrilled!”

This certification course is now three days. Why? We just couldn’t fit all the necessary training into two days. It comes down to the basics of learning the color wheel and the fan decks. Then the training exercises cement the basic training. On top of that, we take field trips to the local Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin stores to give the classroom training clarification. Then we perform personal color consultations and have been told repeatedly that they are invaluable! There is no way to include all of this priceless training in two days.
