Mississippi Interior Design Continuing Education Requirements

Cindy Grant, January 24, 2020

Mississippi State Seal Continuing EducationCertified Mississippi Interior Designers are required complete 12 hours of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) in Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) subjects every 2 years.

  • CE Requirement:  12 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every 2 year period. All topics must qualify as Health, Safety & Welfare (HSW) subjects.
  • Renewal Date: January 31 of even years.
  • CE Reporting Cycle: Biennial - Credits must be earned between February 1 of the renewal year and January 31 of the next renewal year (for example, February 1, 2020 - January 31, 2022 for January 2022 renewal). 
  • Acceptable Coursework: The Mississippi State Board of Architecture does not pre-approve courses or providers. Courses approved by IDCEC or AIA under the HSW designation are generally acceptable. However, it is the certificate holder's responsibility to use his/her professional judgment to determine if an activity meets the Board's criteria as summarized in this post and - most importantly - as outlined on the Board website.
  • Reporting of CreditsProviders cannot report continuing education credits earned to the Mississippi Board. Certificate holders are required to attest to the completion of CE requirements as a condition of renewal. Design Arts Seminars reports credits electronically whenever possible.
  • Tracking of Credits: Records of successful completion of continuing education should be kept for at least 2 years from the date of application for certificate renewal.
  • Audit:  All interior designers certified in Mississippi are subject to audit by the Board and upon request will need to provide documentation to support the CEUs claimed at renewal.
  • Carry-over Credits: Not permitted.
