    The Tanzania Institute of Management and Development has an online certification program for interior design. Students can enroll anytime, and the program is self-directed, so there is no need to travel anywhere first in order to take the courses. They require students to have some working knowledge of their chosen subject area before beginning this particular coursework (which makes sense as the title will give anyone who doesn't know what it's about a fair warning). You have three levels of certification - beginner, intermediate, or advanced.
