Georgia Interior Design Continuing Education Requirements


The Georgia State Board of Architects and Interior Designers requires Georgia-registered interior designers to complete twelve (12) hours of continuing education every two years.
  • CE Requirement:  Twelve (12) PDUs (Professional Development Units), of which at least six (6) must be in public protection subjects (HSW). The remaining six (6) credits may be earned in related practice subjects (non HSW).
  • CE Cycle: Two-year period running from April 1 of odd-numbered years through March 31 of the following odd-numbered year (e.g. April 1, 2011 through March 31, 2013).
  • Acceptable Coursework: Continuing education hours must be AIA and/or IDCEC-approved and acquired via stuctured educational activities (i.e. seminar, internet or correspondence course). Use your 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 (see "Source" at the end of this post for weblink). 
  • Reporting of Credits:  Providers CANNOT report continuing education credits earned to the Georgia Board, neither can registrants (except in case of audit - see "audit" below).
  • Tracking of Credits: Registrants are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities for at least four years. Did you know? Design Arts Seminars keeps track of the courses you take with us and provides you with online access to your transcript saving you both time and money, especially in case of audit.
  • Audit: A random sample of registrants will be selected for an in-depth audit to verify compliance with continuing education requirements.
