If you are already a “Certified Interior Designer”, you do not have to take the IDEX® California exam. The exam is only for designers who want to become Certified in California.
If you are a non certified interior designer working on projects in California, you do not have to take the IDEX® nor be ‘certified’ but your projects are still subject to California Building Codes.
Any designer living in California or not, will benefit from taking our IDEX Prep Online class.

How is IDEX different from the NCIDQ?
Learn how to become Certified by CCIDC to get a legally recognized title and credential. Once certified, you’ll be able to stamp drawings for plan check, provide client assurance of competency and use any of the following legal titles:
Certified Interior Designer in the state of California (with or without #xxxx)
Certified Interior Designer (with or without #xxxx)
CID (with or without #xxxx)
A CID may also say they are certified by CCIDC (with or without #xxxx) but this more of an explanation
rather than a title designated by California law.
