Continuing education strengthens the interior design profession by improving individual attitudes, competencies, knowledge and skills in specific subject areas essential to interior design. Learning experiences focus on the individual and involve activities that encompass thinking, doing and reflection.
CEU requirements have changed to a national standard adopted by eight provincial associations. Continuing education credits are now reported on-line via the IDCEC (Interior Design Continuing Education Council) website, using a new tracking system.
The current reporting cycle is January 1st, 2022 to December 31st, 2024.
CEU Requirements per three year reporting cycle:
Minimum of 30 hours which includes a mandatory requirement of 15 IDCEC approved CEUs, of which 8 must be Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) hours.
Minimum of 20 hours which includes a mandatory requirement of 5 IDCEC approved CEUs, all of which must be Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) hours.
