Three major design organizations have joined together to create an accrediting body for interior design continuing education. American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) and International Interior Design Association (IIDA) are among the partners involved.
The organizations will formalize what is currently a voluntary consortium known as the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC).
The organization believes that continuing education strengthens the interior design profession by improving individual attitudes, competencies, knowledge and skills in subject areas essential to the growth and success of the industry. The new IDCEC aims to streamline the accreditation process for both course takers and providers, and to elevate the quality of continuing education within the industry. Quality of content, sustainable business practices, customer service and reliability are all core values of the new IDCEC.
Under the direction of newly hired IDCEC Director Brynell D’Mello, a small Toronto-based staff will be selected and board of directors chosen as the organization works to centralize operations and build an infrastructure.
