Alabama Interior Design Continuing Education Requirements


The Alabama Board for Registered Interior Designers requires Alabama-registered interior designers to complete ten (10) hours of continuing education every year.
  • CE Requirement:  Ten (10) CEUs (Continuing Education Units) annually (see "CE Cycle" below). All ten (10) CEUs must qualify as Health, Safety & Welfare (HSW) credits. At least four (4) of the ten (10) credits must be related to codes and standards (i.e. ADA, ANSI, BOCA, ICC, LEED, etc). 
  • CE Cycle: Annual - from October 1 to September 30.
  • Acceptable CourseworkAt least six (6) of the ten (10) hours must be earned via in-person study (i.e. face-to-face seminars and presentations) and a maximum of four (4) hours may be earned in self-directed setting (i.e. home study, online, correspondence, etc). The Alabama Board does not pre-approve providers of continuing education. Choose continuing education activities for which you will receive a certificate of completion showing verifiable course information (AIA, ASID, IIDA, IDCEC, USGBC, etc. course number). 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). Registrants have the option to request prior written approval of a proposed CEU at least 6 weeks in advance of the scheduled activity.
  • Reporting of Credits:  Providers CANNOT report continuing education credits earned to the Alabama Board. However, registrants - as part of the annual renewal process - MUST complete the continuing education section of the annual renewal form attesting to the fulfillment of all continuing education requirements. 
  • Tracking of Credits: Members are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities for at least two years from the renewal date for which they were claimed. 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 may be selected for an in-depth audit to verify compliance with continuing education requirements.
