Keeping Track of Your CEUs
You can keep a record of your CEU courses through NCIDQ with a form you receive when you take a course. If you have taken an interior design-related course for which you did not receive CEU credit, you can obtain credit by completing an Individual CEU Approval Form along with an NCIDQ participant form. (Please note: The Individual CEU Approval Form is only for those courses which have not been approved by any member of IDCEC.) To download or print a copy of both forms, click here, or send an e-mail request with your name and mailing address to
