WASHINGTON, DC—The National Council for Interior Design Qualification, Inc. (NCIDQ) administers a professional qualification exam twice a year (spring and fall) to test individuals on their competency in health, safety and welfare as it relates to the practice of interior design. NCIDQ provides testing locations all over the United States and Canada, and has just released its testing locations list for 2009.
The list includes some changes from 2008 as well as some additional locations. The following changes will be implemented in 2009:
- NCIDQ is increasing locations in south Florida. In 2008 we offered testing in the Fort Lauderdale area only. In 2009, testing will be available in Fort Lauderdale in the fall, with additional locations in Miami and West Palm Beach in the spring.
- Testing will increase in Overland Park, Kansas from once a year to twice a year.
- The Augusta, Maine testing location will be moved to Portland, Maine to accommodate candidates in the state's largest city.
- NCIDQ will add a site in Cincinnati, Ohio each fall and in Jackson, Mississippi each spring.
- The Memphis, Tennessee site will now be available only in the fall due to nearby sites in Little Rock, Arkansas and Jackson, Mississippi in the spring.
The next NCIDQ Exam will be offered April 3-4, 2009. The testing locations for the spring 2009 exam are now listed on the NCIDQ Web site by city and state here. The application deadline for the spring 2009 exam is December 10, 2008. For information on upcoming application and registration deadlines, see the Exam Dates & Deadlines Schedule at www.ncidq.org.
NCIDQ is an organization of regulatory boards and provincial associations in the United States and Canada whose core purpose is to protect the health, life safety and welfare of the public by establishing standards of competence in the practice of interior design.
