+ WHAT IS THE RENO SCHOOL?

The Reno School comprises online courses developed by Three Birds Renovations to give you the knowledge and confidence you need to design, renovate and style your dream home. We share everything we’ve learned with you, from how to refine the vision, to how to hire and manage trades, budget, plan and (our favourite part!) style your new space. The Reno School used to offer just one type of course - a 6-week online program covering all aspects of a whole home reno (or new build), however The Reno School now also offers two new shorter courses called Kitchen Bootcamp and Bathroom Bootcamp, which are also all online. You choose the program which suits you best.

+ WHICH RENO SCHOOL COURSE IS BEST FOR ME?

There are 3 programs to choose from:

1) The Complete Course is the original and most comprehensive Reno School program. It's designed for those of you renovating more than just a bathroom or kitchen. If you're renovating a whole home, doing an extension, changing the exterior of your home, landscaping your backyard, putting in a pool or perhaps constructing a new build, The Complete Course is for you. If you want support from others during the course (and with your particular project), our private Facebook Group is the answer and is only available to students doing this particular course. You'll get Lifetime Access to this amazing community of Reno Schoolers. This is also the only course which offers Lifetime Access to our Supplier Discounts.

2) Kitchen Bootcamp is a cut-down version of The Complete Course, containing only the information you need to know if you're embarking on a kitchen renovation. We've removed all the extra stuff that's not relevant like landscaping, bedrooms, lounge rooms, exteriors and pools. So if you're only doing a kitchen reno, this is the course for you. But if you'd like Lifetime Access to our private Facebook Group and Supplier Discounts, you might prefer to upgrade to The Complete Course.

3) Bathroom Bootcamp is a cut-down version of The Complete Course, containing only the information you need to know if you're embarking on a bathroom renovation. We've removed all the extra stuff that's not relevant like landscaping, bedrooms, lounge rooms, exteriors and pools. So if you're only doing a bathroom reno, this is the course for you. But if you'd like Lifetime Access to our private Facebook Group and Supplier Discounts, you might prefer to upgrade to The Complete Course.

+ WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 'THE COMPLETE COURSE' AND THE 'BOOTCAMPS'?

We have created an easy to follow table to help you choose, click here to view it.

+ HOW LONG ARE THE COURSES?

The Complete Course takes 6 weeks. Bootcamps can be completed in just 48hrs.

+ IS THE RENO SCHOOL 100% ONLINE?

Yes. All the courses are online and can be done in your own space, at your own pace ;-) You can download the course content to your smartphone, tablet or computer so that you always have access to the pretty PDFs and templates.

+ WHAT IS THE RENO SCHOOL COMMUNITY?

A private Facebook Group for students and graduates of The Complete Course. Bonnie, Erin and Lana are also part of the group. Together, everyone helps each other with their individual reno projects. It's a great way to get feedback on your reno plans and helpful advice just when you need it most. You can post photos, ask questions and get help almost instantly. Students tell us the Facebook Group is one of their most loved aspects of The Reno School. Please note you can only access this Facebook Group by signing up to The Complete Course - it's not offerred as part of the Bootcamp courses.

+ WHAT DOES 'LIFETIME ACCESS' MEAN?

If you sign up to The Complete Course you will get Lifetime Access. That’s right, you can retake the course as many times as you’d like for FREE; be part of the Reno School Community FOREVER and access the exclusive Supplier Discounts for as long as the program is in existence. Yeh, we think that's pretty awesome too ;-) But, please note you can't access these benefits with the Bootcamp courses.

+ HOW DO I ACCESS SUPPLIER DISCOUNTS?

Supplier Discounts are only available as part of The Complete Course, not the Bootcamp courses. We've done a ring around to all our favourite suppliers and asked them to show you the love too. If you sign up to The Complete Course you'll get Liftetime Access to discounts from our suppliers. Now that's a loooong time so be prepared for these offers to be constantly changing with new partners jumping on board and old ones dropping off. You can check out the current offers here.

The Complete Course is A$699. Bootcamps are A$299. All our courses come with a 100% Money-Back Guarantee. Love it, or your money back.

+ WHAT IS THE MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE?

We're so confident you'll love The Reno School that we're putting our money where our mouths are and offering you a 100% Money-Back Guarantee. Whaaat? That's right, if you don't love your Reno School program, we'll give you back your money #riskfreeinvestment.

+ WHO IS THE RENO SCHOOL FOR?

The Reno School is for anyone who wants to improve their home. Whether you’re a complete rookie when it comes to renos, or someone with a bit of experience under your toolbelt, this course will take your property renovation and styling skills to the next level.

The Reno School is relevant for those of you doing a renovation, extension, new build, backyard or even just updating one room in the house. And hey, if you're already in the middle of your reno, you can still learn loads about how to get it finished (which is often the hardest part).

+ I'VE RENOVATED BEFORE. WILL I LEARN ANYTHING NEW?

Yes, absolutely! Every reno is different. We learn so many new things from every project, and we’re sure you’ll find tips, lessons and approaches that will make you an even better renovator as we work through the course and share our experiences.

+ WHEN DOES THE RENO SCHOOL START?

The Complete Course is only offered three times a year. Sign up today to gain early access to the Supplier Discounts and Reno School Facebook Group.

The Bootcamps are ready to start when you are. You can download the content today if like.

+ CAN I ACCESS THE COURSE ANYTIME?

The Complete Course comes with Lifetime Access, meaning you can retake the course as many times as you like, for FREE.

YOu don't need ongoing access to the Bootcamp courses because all the content is made available for you to download as soon as you sign up.

+ CAN I DO THE RENO SCHOOL AT MY OWN PACE?

Don't worry, all the Reno School courses are designed to be done at your own pace. But if you're super keen, the fastest you can do The Complete Course is 6 weeks (because we release a new module each week), but with our Bootcamps, we release all the content up front so you can work through it in just 48 hours if you're a keen bean.

+ WHAT IF I SIGN UP TO THE COMPLETE COURSE AND THEN CAN’T MAKE THE START DATE?

No worries, you can move through the course at your own pace. You have Lifetime Access so the content will always be available for you to download.

+ IS THE RENO SCHOOL ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN AUSTRALIA?

We have hundreds of international students who have loved doing The Reno School. 95% of our course content covers lots of good stuff that will be relevant no matter which country you plan to renovate in. However, the information we provide about council approval and tradie licensing is based on Australian laws and procedures so you'll need to check your own local rules and regulations. And the Supplier Discounts we offer with The Complete Course are for Australian residents only.

+ IS THE RENO SCHOOL ONLY FOR GIRLS?

Heck no. Everyone is welcome and we already have quite a few men who have completed the course... and loved it!

+ DOES THE RENO SCHOOL COVER HOW TO FLIP PROPERTIES?

Yes, it does within The Complete Course, but the main focus is on renovating your own home, moreso than investment properties. This is not a course specifically designed for people who want to flip houses.

+ CAN I BUY A PRINTED VERSION OF THE RENO SCHOOL?

No, the courses are all online and shared with you in digital form. However you can create your own hard copies by downloading the pretty PDF's and templates to your smartphone, tablet or computer ... but beware you might end up making a few trips to Officeworks for paper and ink - there's a whole lotta content in there. For this reason we recommend you try and view the course a screen.

+ ARE THERE ANY TESTS OR ASSESSMENTS?

Nope - no need for added stress.

+ WILL I GET A CERTIFICATE AT THE END?

You betcha! Just email us at hello@therenoschool.com when you're done, we'll ask you to fill out a short survey (so we know which parts you loved the most) and then we will send you an official Three Birds Renovations Reno School certificate which you can print out and put wherever you like.

+ DO YOU OFFER LAYBY/AFTERPAY?

Afraid not. We'd like to, but our system doesn't allow it.

+ I DON’T HAVE A CREDIT CARD. CAN I PAY ANOTHER WAY?

Sorry, at the moment we are strictly credit card/debit card only.

+ CAN I SHARE MY PASSWORD DETAILS?

No way, rosé! Your password is only for you. Please don’t share your login details with anyone. (We track multiple downloads, so we’ll know!)
