Georgia Interior Design Continuing Education Requirements
Micène Fontaine, June 22, 2018
Registered Georgia interior designers are required to complete 12 hours of Continuing Education every 2 years.
- CE Requirement: 12 PDUs (Professional Development Units), of which at least 6 must be in Public Protection Subjects (qualified as Health, Safety & Welfare). The remaining 6 credits may be earned in related practice subjects (non HSW).
- Renewal Date: March 31 of odd-numbered years (2023, 2025, etc.).
- CE Cycle: Biennial - Credits must be earned within the 2-year period running from April 1 of odd-numbered years through March 31 of the following odd-numbered year (e.g. April 1, 2021 through March 31, 2023).
- Acceptable Coursework: Continuing education hours must be AIA and/or IDCEC-approved and acquired via structured educational activities (i.e. seminar, internet or correspondence course). Use your professional judgment to determine if an activity meets the criteria of the Georgia Board of Architects & Interior Designers as summarized in this post and on Board's website.
- 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 4 years.
- Audit: A random sample of registrants will be selected for an in-depth audit to verify compliance with continuing education requirements.
- Did you know? Design Arts Seminars reports credits electronically to the International Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) so you don’t have to.
