A programme of education specifically for interior designers in practice

As a leading organisation and accreditation body for Interior Design in the UK, SBID Accredited designers must fulfil an annual CPD requirement to demonstrate their commitment to continued professional development. As a result, SBID members are continually developing their skillsets for the benefit of their clients, as well as improving their career prospects.

To support the profession, SBID CPD’s help designers become more knowledgeable and remain up to date with ever-changing market forces. No matter the level of accreditation, SBID provides a powerful mix of events and opportunities to aid the ongoing learning.

Pioneering Accredited CPD for Interior Design

interior design CPD, CPD Training

Pioneering continued professional development (CPD), training and work experience as a requirement of SBID professional membership. In 2012, the CPD programme for interior designers was registered to validate and license CPD Providers as fit-for-purpose to meet SBID’s professional standards. The intellectual property was later incorporated into SBID.

As the interior design professional’s lifelong learning path has evolved, SBID have also changed the ways in which interior design CPD® education is provided. Reflecting the way designers now work, SBID provide access to monthly CPD webinars online and on demand in SBIDPro.

The importance of SBID Accredited CPD®

An SBID Accredited CPD ® provides an exacting standard and relevance to the UK interior design practicing industry. It has gained its leadership status from the content of licensed brand providers who offer the training and from the interior designers and architects who review them. SBID members attend on-line and face-to-face CPD events listed in the Accredited CPD Directory in SBIDPro to maintain their specialist industry knowledge. Each provider meets the five-point entry system, the SBID International Code of Conduct and independent education assessments to uphold industry training standards.

SBID members can apply to become a CPD Provider and host an Accredited CPD webinar to a professional audience of interior designers.
