Become a Certified Interior Decorator
C.I.D. serves as a dual purpose certifying body and professional membership association exclusively for Certified 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 C.I.D. is exclusively for current professional members of Certified Interior Decorators International (C.I.D.).
No other individual, organization,
college, or school
can “Certify” Interior Decorators.
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 showrooms.
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. PROFESSIONAL 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.
