Louisiana Interior Design Continuing Education Requirements

Micène Fontaine, December 12, 2017

Louisiana State Flag Continuing EducationLouisiana interior designers are required to complete 5 hours of Continuing Education every year. All credits must qualify as Health, Safety & Welfare (HSW).

  • CE Requirement:  5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every calendar year. All 5 hours must qualify as HSW (Health, Safety & Welfare) credits.
  • Renewal Date:  December 31 of every year.
  • CE Cycle: Annual - 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 Louisiana Board of Interior Designers 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.
  • Did you know? Design Arts Seminars reports credits electronically to the International Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) so you don’t have to.
