In 2012 SBID launched the first accredited CPD programme for interior design in the UK specifically for interior designers. Although the first to market, it remains the preeminent programme for professionals in practice governed by a strictly assessed, quality controlled criteria to become a licensed  CPD provider. Growing year on year, SBID consulted and improved the variety of ways in which we delivered CPD ® to members. 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.

SBID History

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.

SBID are currently updating their CPD courses to a new and improved area to register and download CPD programmes. The system will be completed in Autumn 2019.
