Becoming NCIDQ Certified distinguishes interior designers by demonstrating a specific set of core competencies, supported by work experience and a college degree.  NCIDQ Certificate holders have proven their expertise in understanding and applying current codes established to protect public health, safety, and welfare.  How are you preparing students for success after graduation, including educating them about the NCIDQ Exam?  Do you incorporate the first section – the IDFX Exam – into the curriculum for your senior students?  Are you inviting alumni back to share insights into their careers?  Get these questions answered and learn from your peers in this panel discussion led by CIDQ.
