Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

A number of states require licensing for interior designers, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Each state has its own requirements for licensing and regulations for practice, so it's important to contact the specific state in order to find out how one can apply. To become eligible for registration or licensing in these jurisdictions, applicants must satisfy experience and education requirements and take the NCIDQ Examination, which is offered by the Council for Interior Design Qualification.
