The California Council for Interior Design Certification (CCIDC) will promote the standard for interior designers in the State of California “Public protection through examination and Certification”.
Under the Certified Interior Designer Title Act, Certified Interior Designers qualified by CCIDC upon evidence of a combination of interior design education and/or experience and passage of a designated examination.
Only CCIDC can determine eligibility for Certified Interior Designers in the State of California. Designers who meet the education, experience and examination criteria of Certified Interior Designers Title Act under Chapter 3.9, Section 5800 of the California Business and Professions Code; may be allowed to use the title “Certified Interior Designer,” codified and protected by law in the State of California.
Upon qualification, the Certified Interior Designer will be identified by an individual number which will appear on a certificate, a stamp with which to identify interior design nonstructural and non-seismic drawings and documents, and an identification card.
Certified Interior Designers (CID), as mandated by the State of California, met high standards of qualification and agreed to uphold a strict code of ethics and conduct.
Candidates will have access to the necessary continuing education and training opportunities.
Consumers will have ability to verify status of Certified Interior Designers and will have the information they need to make informed choices for procuring design services.
