UAA Interior Designer Receives New Certification

January 22, 2019

We would like to congratulate Taylor Hecht on earning her certification from the NCIDQ!

This is the industry standard for professional interior designers!


NCIDQ stands for National Council for Interior Design Qualification


To achieve the status of a Professional Interior Designer one must have a college degree, several hours of work experience under a licensed designer and/or architect, and pass the 3 sections of the NCIDQ exam. The three, separate test sections cover seven distinct areas that capture core competencies:

  • building systems

  • building codes

  • construction standards

  • construction administration

  • design application

  • professional practice

  • project coordination

By passing these exams, you are proving that you have the skills to design and execute interior environments that protect the safety, healthcare and well-being of its inhabitants.


It’s important that a designer thinks through the many issues that directly relate to the public’s well-being. Addressing potential issues makes for good, smart design that often goes unnoticed until you are in a space that is poorly designed.


You can have confidence when selecting an NCIDQ certified designer that they work to create and make design selections and decisions with public health, safety, and welfare in mind, delivering a solution that fully performs to your specific needs while meeting code and professional practice standards. 


Congratulations, Taylor! We are proud to have you on our team!
