Interior Design Faculty Earn NCIDQ Certification

Megan Blossom and Reiko Igarashi passed the National Council for Interior Design Qualification exam, earning the prestigious NCIDQ certification.

The National Council for Interior Design Qualification protects public health, safety and welfare by identifying interior designers who have the knowledge and experience to create interior spaces that are not just aesthetically pleasing, but also functional and safe.

An independent, nonprofit organization of state and provincial credentialing bodies, NCIDQ has issued professional certificates to competent interior design professionals since 1974. Interior designers who meet NCIDQ's eligibility requirements for education and experience and pass the rigorous NCIDQ Examination are assigned a unique NCIDQ Certificate number that attests to their qualifications for employers, state regulators and the general public.

In addition to developing and administering the examination, NCIDQ provides research and expertise that informs state and provincial licensing laws and regulations for the interior design profession.

Successful completion of the NCIDQ Examination is required for professional registration in 26 of the U.S. states and Canadian provinces that have enacted licensing or certification statutes to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public. An NCIDQ Certificate also is required for professional membership in the American Society of Interior Designers, as well as for the professional interior designer membership categories of the International Interior Design Association and the member associations of the Interior Designers of Canada.
