Jordan A.’s Answer

Hi there! To become a licensed interior designer you need to complete the 3Es. EDUCATION: a 4yr degree from a CIDA accredited program. EXPERIENCE: a 3yr paid internship working for a licensed designer. EXAMINATION: pass your NCIDQ exams. I encourage you to Google all of these acronyms along with professional organizations like the IIDA for more detailed information. Best of luck!
