This is your year to complete the NCIDQ exam!

Published by Sarah Bradbury, June 28, 2016.

The NCIDQ Certification is the mark of a professional interior designer and demonstrates that you have been educated, trained and examined to protect public health, safety and welfare.

“The NCIDQ exam was beneficial for me as a designer because it encapsulated all my studies with my experience into one unit,” says Carmen Harper, a Registered member in British Columbia. “I’ve gained additional recognition at Site Lines Architecture, the firm where I currently work, and it has opened up doors in the commercial and health care industries.”

Earning the NCIDQ Certification is an important milestone for interior designers, but it can feel like a daunting and intimidating process. That’s why IDC has organized a number of NCIDQ practice sessions this fall to ease you into the exam.

IDC’s weekend practice sessions are designed to provide an overview of the NCIDQ exam including exam format, study tips, helpful handouts, exam writing strategies and exam simulation.

Check the IDC event calendar to find the location nearest you and prepare to make 2016 the year you earn your NCIDQ certification!
