Understanding the value of continuing education and research has been the mainstay of IIDA since its inception. Educated practitioners make informed, safe, and creative decisions which affect us all.


Educational programs serve as a creative outlet to promote awareness regarding pertinent issues within the practice of Interior Design.

Share your knowledge and expertise with our local design community.  If you are interested in course accreditation through IDCEC, IIDA Northern Pacific Chapter can help.

Continuing education opportunities come in a variety of formats.  If you are in need of CEU credit, we can search our online CEU database to find a course that peeks your interest.

Engage with local students and young professionals to share your knowledge, passion, and time. Opportunities at local colleges and design events are available for those seeking to connect with the design professionals of our future.


A CEU, a continuing education unit, is a measurement of contact hours and credit assigned to an approved course.

CEUs are awarded based on full-hour increments only.
