    Interested in becoming a Consultant?

    Are you already a Consultant?

    How can I become a Consultant?

    To be certified as a KonMari Consultant, you must attend a Consultant Certification Course, practice tidying with two clients, and then take a written exam. There are seven steps involved:

    1. Read the books: Read Marie Kondo’s "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and "Spark Joy."

    2. Tidy your home: Certified KonMari Consultants must practice what they teach. Submit after photos of your tidied home for verification.

    3. Attend a Consultant Certification Course: Registering for and attending a Consultant Certification Course are the first big steps toward certification. You will only be recognized as a KonMari Consultant-in-training once you have successfully completed a Consultant Certification Course.

    In the Consultant Certification Course, we expand on the KonMari Method™ and why it’s essential to adhere to its principles and categories. Marie has decades of tidying experience, and upholding her work is critical to the program’s success.

    We also teach candidates what it’s like working with clients. There’s a big difference between applying the KonMari Method™ in your own home and applying it in someone else’s. This is where “soft skills” come in. We coach Consultants-in-training on how to listen better. You need to be supportive of your clients in every way, so we teach Consultants-in-training how to remove judgement and guide constructively.

    Our Consultant Certification Courses include a mix of lectures, group discussions and Q&A sessions, ensuring that attendees feel adequately prepared for the next step of the certification process.

    Upon completion, you will then be able to advance to steps 4-7.

    Please note: Attending a Consultant Certification Course does not guarantee becoming a Consultant. Steps 1 and 2 are prerequisites to attending a Consultant Certification Course. You will be asked to submit after photos of your tidied home after you register for a Consultant Certification Course.

    4. Join the community: You will be invited to join the growing community of certified KonMari Consultants and KonMari Consultants-in-training via the official Consultant Certification Course attendee Facebook groups, where you can exchange information and ideas with others who are also working toward certification.

    Please note: You will only be granted access to the Facebook groups after you have successfully completed a Consultant Certification Course.

    5. Submit tidying reports: Conduct at least 10 practice sessions (approximately 30 hours) in at least two clients’ homes and submit reports in the KonMari Method™ order.

    6. Complete the exam: The online assessment exam covers concepts and potential scenarios you will face as a certified KonMari Consultant.

    7. Apply for certification: Once all of the above steps have been successfully fulfilled and your application is approved, you will be required to sign the KonMari Consultant contract and pay your annual membership fee of $500 to activate your certification.
