| C.I.D. serves
as a dual purpose certifying body and professional membership association
exclusively for Certified Interior Decorators. No other individual,
organization, college or school program or can "certify"
Interior Decorators. Founder, President and renowned Interior
Designer Ron Renner conceived the idea of certifying Interior Decorators
for the first time in history. His purpose was to define the difference
between Interior Designers and Interior Decorators and clarify the
role of the professionally trained and tested Certified Interior
Decorator. The term "Certified Interior Decorator" and the appellation
"C.I.D." are registered trademarks filed in 1997 in the U.S. Patent
and Trademark office in Washington, DC. The use of CID or C.I.D. is
exclusively for current professional members of Certified
Interior Decorators International (C.I.D.). Becoming a member
of C.I.D. will increase your potential for acquiring clients
and provide total access to the wholesale trade workrooms and furniture
The C.I.D. Certification program was written by Ron Renner, ASID to provide professional training and testing of Interior Decorators and was designed to allow the talented (novice or experienced) decorator to earn credentials for the purpose of pursuing a career as a "Certified Interior Decorator". The program is a complete Interior Decorating course with Certification. Our exclusive Certification program is taught in an easy, informative and concise manner through the use of ONLINE education or our Direct Workbook correspondence program. Teachings include, Function of Interior Spaces, History of Furniture, Trade Showrooms, Use of Color, Lighting, Scale and How to Charge for your services as a Certified Interior Decorator. C.I.D. is also the only organization that can educate, test, and certify Interior Decorators.
Both the ONLINE PROGRAM and the DIRECT MAIL WORKBOOK PROGRAM include the C.I.D. ENTRANCE EXAM and a free ONE YEAR C.I.D. MEMBERSHIP ($295.00 value). Professional C.I.D. credentials will be sent upon successful completion of the Exam. Membership must be renewed annually to retain Certification.

is a wonderful program for someone who has talent for decorating but
wants or needs to add the validity that becoming certified offers.
The C.I.D. designation and membership in the Certified Interior Decorators
International organization will open doors and lets consumers know
you are a professional they can trust. So... thank you Mr. Renner."

"Any industry that decides to create guidelines and raise the professionalism of its industry deserves commendation and the decoration community deserves no less."
FASID Past President of the National Council of Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ)
have just finished the C.I.D. Certification Program. I have found
that your section on "The History of Furniture and Architectural
Styles"very concise and informative and exactly what I needed.
The other section was Session #7, "Consulting: Fees and Compensation".
It cleared up so much for me on exactly what I should be charging.
I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful program."
