Since 1974, CIDQ’s mission has been to create, test and promote guidelines for determining competency in the practice of interior design. NCIDQ Certification has been the global standard for interior design professionals for 50 years.

To commemorate this major milestone, CIDQ will be celebrating our members, certificate holders, Board of Directors, countless dedicated volunteers, and the interior design community, through videos, testimonials, stories and photos. 

As we continue to grow and innovate during this milestone year, CIDQ would like to recognize, celebrate, and invest in our most important stakeholders - our active NCIDQ Certificate holders. As a value-add, CIDQ has partnered with Credly to launch a digital badge program, which provides a digital version of the NCIDQ credential. The image contains verified metadata that describes a certificate holder's qualifications and the process required to earn NCIDQ Certification, and should be used to showcase the accomplishment.
