Certified Education Features and Presentations for Designers and Architects

Professional interior designers and architects must complete a certain number of hours of certified Continuing Education Units (CEUs) each year to maintain their qualifications. Often, suppliers can't even get appointments with busy design firms unless their information is CEU certified. 

CEU providers and CEU programs are approved by the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC). IDCEC programs are accepted by most AIA chapters. 

CEUs are delivered in one of two ways.

  • Distance-Learning:
    • Designers read an approved educational article on a given subject (materials, markets, design, practices, etc.), and answer test questions.
    • The article can be distributed via email blasts, hosted on web sites, shared as a handout, or placed in a magazine. 
    • The CEU provider (i.e., Material Intelligence) grades the tests and submits the results to the IDCEC, which then gives the individual designer credit.
  • In-Person Presentations:
    • Designers attend a certified CEU presentation, and get credit for their time.

Material Intelligence has created over a dozen certified CEU articles and presentations, uniquely blending technical information with a case-study approach that readers find interesting and engaging.
