NCIDQ is the National Council for Interior Design Qualification

NCIDQ is the global leader in establishing standards of competence for interior design/interior architecture professionals.

The NCIDQ protects public health, safety and welfare by identifying interior designers who have the knowledge and experience to create interior spaces that are not just aesthetically pleasing, but also functional and safe.

The NCIDQ offers interior designers an examination to test competency in the profession of interior design.  Interior designers who pass the NCIDQ examination are recognized for meeting the minimum standards for professional practice. Passing the NCIDQ is a prerequisite to professional registration in the state of Wisconsin as well as professional membership in IIDA.
