Continuing education strengthens the interior design profession by improving individual attitudes, competencies, knowledge and skills in specific subject areas essential to interior design. Learning experiences focus on the individual and involve activities that encompass thinking, doing and reflection. In interior design, a select number of continuing education units (CEUs) may be required over a designated period of time by a professional organization or by legal registration through a particular jurisdiction.
