CCRE Results for October Exam + Dates for 2008
The October 2007 CCRE results are:
Out of 85 candidates who sat for the exam, 59 passed, which is a pass rate of 69%. Letters to all 85 candidates were mailed earlier this week. If you haven't received your results by the end of next week, please call the CCIDC office at 760-761-4734 or 
E-mail us.

Also of interest to CCRE candidates - - The current CCRE will remain in effect for next year (2008) as the new codes are not effective until January 1st, 2008 and most jurisdictions probably won't adopt them until approximately 6 months later. CIDs should still learn and start using the new codes wherever it is applicable. The CCIDC board will be working on a new updated CCRE throughout 2008 and plans to have it in place as an online 24/7 examination by the beginning of 2009. In the meantime CCRE candidates in 2008 should use the study material and study guide they are given when they register which is based upon the 1997 UBC and the 1998 CBC.

The next CCRE dates are:
April 19, 2008
October 18, 2008 

The deadline to
register for the April exam is Feb. 25, 2008
The deadline
to
register for the October exam is Sept. 2, 2008

The CCRE is one of our exam requirements to become a Certified Interior Designer in the state of California. The exam can be taken anytime, by anyone. There are no prerequisites requiring education or experience. Interior design students are encouraged to take the CCRE to start their Certification process early while they are still in school.
