What the Students Say


"The RIDQC Certification status far exceeded my expectations. I found I was able to quickly apply what I learned directly to design challenges I had been stumped by for some time. By the end of the course I felt I had a sufficient toolkit and the confidence to apply what I learned to various clients' needs."

From A Professor


"Taking the RIDQC (Residential Interior Design Qualifying Certification) is an essential conclusion to a rigorous course of study. The exam validates the knowledge base of the newly trained residential interior designer. Many professionals have mandatory exams, which must be passed before the new doctor, teacher, lawyer, nurse, etc., can practice the craft for which the individual is trained. By voluntarily taking the RIDQC the candidate for certification is demonstrating a high level of professionalism. This nationally recognized exam gives the residential interior designer a prestigious credential that gives flexibility in the marketplace and expands the horizons for the new professional. After all the hard work and training in an extensive course of study, why not take the RIDQC?"
