Looking to get on track for your interior design professional certification?

Registration for the Spring 2020 NCIDQ Study Group is now OPEN!

Registration will close on Tuesday, December 31st.

Participation is FREE for IIDA NY members.

To participate in the Study Group, you must be eligible to take the exam, and also plan to register for at least two exam sections for this coming Spring 2020 exam. See www.cidq.org for requirements, deadlines, eligibility details, and application process. Applications are due January 31st but it is encouraged that you submit all application paperwork prior to the Information Session on January 7th in order to confirm eligibility for the Spring Exam Period.

To allow for maximum reach in the design community, the study group is available to new participants first. If you have participated in the group previously you will be waitlisted.

There are a total of ten sessions. The first is an Information Session for all registered participants to find out more about the exam process and study group. The next eight are study sessions and are held on consecutive weeks on Monday’s+ and will conclude prior to the first exam date. The tenth session will be held following the last exam date and will be focused on feedback about the study sessions as well as providing information about the path to becoming a Certified Interior Designer.

We ask that participants miss no more than two sessions. The tentative schedule is as follows. Please note this schedule is subject to change.

Interest Session – 1/7/20

Sessions 1 thru 8 – 2/3/20 through 3/23/20 (Monday’s)+
