SBID Accreditation demonstrates a level of industry-recognised professionalism and a standard of independently-assessed competence required for the professional practice of interior design.

As a leading organisation and accreditation body for Interior Design in the UK, SBID Accredited designers fulfil an annual CPD requirement to demonstrate their commitment to continued professional development. In turn, SBID members are continually developing their skillsets for the benefit of their clients, as well as increasing their career prospects.
In order 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 ongoing learning.
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 has also changed the ways in which interior design CPD® education is provided. Reflecting the way designers now work, SBID provides access to monthly CPD webinars online and on-demand in SBIDPro.
An SBID Accredited CPD ® provides an exacting standard and relevance to the UK interior design practising 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 online 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 the relevant industry training standards.
SBID also recognises alternative CPD providers through other professional organisations including the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT).
