CKDs, CBDs Gain Ground In Two States
Hackettstown, NJ For the first time, CKD and CBD certification exams have been recognized in state interior design certification programs in California and Nebraska, the National Kitchen & Bath Association announced.
In California, the California Council of Interior Design Certification, a private group that has certified over 3,500 interior designers in California, voted to accept the combination of the CKD and CBD exams as part of the qualifications for certification. Previously, the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) and the Council for Qualification of Residential Int-erior Designers (CQRID) were the only exams accepted for certification as a Certified Interior Designer in California, the NKBA said.
In Nebraska, the Certified Interior Designers of Nebraska has established that both NKBA and NCIDQ exams will be accepted for certification, the NKBA added.
