Pioneering Accredited CPD for Interior Design

SBID launched the first independently accredited CPD programme specifically for interior designers in 2012. As the first to market, it is the pre-eminent programme of education for professionals in practice, in order to support the interior design industry by helping professionals remain relevant and knowledgeable.

As the interior design professional’s lifelong learning path has evolved, SBID has also changed the ways in which we provide relevant interior design CPD ® education programmes to reflect way designers work.

The importance of an SBID Accredited CPD ®

An SBID Accredited CPD® meets the highest standard of education quality control and relevance to the UK interior design industry. It has gained its status in leadership from the licensed brand providers and the Interior Designers and Architects they present to.

CPD attendees consist of Architects and Interior Designers at all stages of their career.

SBID Accredited Designers acquire 24 CPD points per annum from an array of SBID recognised providers, each of which met the five point entry system, the SBID international Code of Conduct and independent education assessment. Once approved, CPD applicants are awarded a two-year license.

We also recognise a variety of alternative CPD providers for SBID Accredited members, for example; BRE, RIBA, CIAT, BCFA.

CPD Accredited courses are located in the Directory on SBIDPro.
