In January 2018, the California Department of Interior issued an interior design certificate to an interior designer working in Los Angeles.
The certificate, which certifies the quality of an interior and includes a number of criteria that include design guidelines, features and materials, has been in use since 2012.
It’s a significant step forward for interior designers in the state and, in general, it gives designers greater visibility into the interior design process.
This article looks at the process and what the certificate means for interior design professionals and designers who are interested in the industry.
How does it work?
In California, interior designers work with the department to evaluate interior designs and certify them.
Interior designers work closely with the design team, which includes a director and an architect.
Designers must then provide an initial design, a summary of the design’s vision and other materials to the director, who then approves the final product and makes the final certification.
How do I get a certificate?
There are two types of interior design certificates: the basic interior design certifications and the professional interior design.
The basic interior designer certificate is valid for four years, and is valid at any building or office in the United States.
The professional interior designer certifications can be used for an unlimited number of buildings, offices, or companies.
There are a number, though, of requirements that must be met for each type of certificate: a minimum of three years of experience in the interior industry, a minimum total of 150 square feet of floor area and a minimum number of employees of one, to be approved; a minimum minimum of two years of professional experience in building or interior design in the country, to include, but not limited to, building and interior design and landscape design, and a design certificate in an industry-recognized category, such as sustainable design.
How much do interior design certs cost?
For the basic certification, a certificate is $50 and the $500 fee for a professional interior director certificate is waived.
The $150 fee is waived for the first year, and the fee is $150 each year thereafter.
The cost of the professional certificate is based on the type of certification.
The most expensive certificate is the professional certification, which is a two-year, $750 certificate.
However, that certificate costs $1,400 and must be renewed annually.
The certification fee for the more expensive, professional interior certificate is slightly higher at $1.6 million.
The second most expensive, though?
A two- and three-year certificate, respectively.
That’s a $2.5 million certificate, and requires the approval of the building’s director.
The fee is also waived for all building or company owners.
Where do I apply?
Interior designers can apply to the interior designers program online at interiordesigncertifications.com, or by phone at 1-800-821-2776.
The process is similar to the way interior design is taught in the real estate industry.
Designing an interior can be a rewarding job, and applicants are encouraged to apply in as many different styles as possible.

What can I do if I need help?
There’s no set timeline for completing an interior certification, but it generally takes about four to six months.
In addition to completing the application and completing the certification, the interior designer must complete a three-step certification process.
First, they must create a website for their company.
Next, they have to write a description of their work.
Finally, they submit a design letter that outlines the work, a description and a copy of their design plan.
There’s also a certification process for companies, which involves a letter from the company’s principal executive, a copy to the design director and a letter of approval from the director.
