Louisiana Interior Design Continuing Education Requirements

The Louisiana State Board of Interior Designers requires LA-registered interior designers to complete 5 hours of continuing education every year.

  • CE Requirement:  5 hours of continuing education (CEUs) every calendar year. All 5 hours must qualify as HSW (Health, Safety & Welfare) credits.
  • Renewal Deadline: December 31 every year.
  • CE Cycle: Credits must be earned in the calendar year immediately preceding the license renewal date meaning credits must be earned between January 1 and December 31. 
  • Acceptable Coursework: The Board only accepts courses it has pre-approved. However, courses already IDCEC- or AIA-approved for HSW credits are automatically approved by the Board upon submission of a completed course approval form. Final discretion is up to the Board. 
  • Reporting of Credits:  Providers are required to report continuing education credits earned to the Board. Licensees must also be prepared to submit documentation (e.g. a transcript or certificates from the course providers) in case of audit.
  • Carry-over of credits: Not permitted
