Kentucky Interior Design Continuing Education Requirements

Cindy Grant, Jul 31, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Kentucky Kentucky Interior Designers requires them to complete 12 Professional Development Units (PDUs) every year. 8 of these must be on Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) topics.

  • CE Requirement:  12 hours of Continuing Education (PDUs) every year. Of which, 8 PDUs must qualify as Health, Safety & Welfare (HSW).
  • Renewal Deadline:  September 30 of every year.
  • CE Cycle:  Annual - Credits must be earned in the year immediately preceding the certificate expiration date, meaning continuing education must be earned beginning October 1 and ending September 30 of the following year.
  • Acceptable Coursework: The Kentucky Board of Architects - which regulates Kentucky Interior Design certificates - does not pre-approve courses or providers. Courses approved by IDCEC or AIA under the HSW designation are generally acceptable. However, it is the certificate holder's responsibility to use his/her professional judgment to determine if an activity meets the Board's criteria as summarized in this post and - most importantly - as detailed on Board's website. Final discretion is up to the board.
  • Reporting of Credits:  A list of PDUs completed shall be submitted with the Certification Renewal Application Form each year. Design Arts Seminars reports credits electronically whenever possible.
  • Tracking of Credits:  Certified Interior Designers are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities for at least 2 years from the date of submission of the annual report to the board.
  • Audit:  The Board randomly reviews up to 10% of the certificate holders to verify compliance with continuing education requirements. At the request of the board, those audited will need to provide documentation to support the PDUs claimed at renewal.
