              Becoming?‘SBID Accredited’?means that you have achieved the highest assessed industry benchmark by SBID for competence in interior design*

              Accreditation acknowledges process, skill, experience and knowledge to execute a client brief ?️

              *There are currently no national competency standards set by the Government in the UK or even in most countries around the world. Therefore SBID has successfully created a scheme to provide recognition for varying levels of competence and practice. As SBID have championed competence and training, it is no surprise that the levels of experience were graded against acquired knowledge and professional acumen.?SBID Accredited?is therefore the highest title of competence bestowed by SBID.

              Interior Design professionals at all levels of their career as well as Industry Partners benefit from becoming SBID Accredited. We also welcome those currently studying their degree in interior design to join the SBID Students membership for a head-start in your professional interior design degree.
