About this event

The IIDA Northern Pacific Chapter is excited to announce the Spring 2022 NCIDQ Virtual Study Sessions for the Northern Pacific Chapter of the IIDA!  Led by NCIDQ Certified Designers who have passed their exams within the last 3 years, these study sessions will help participants prepare for each section of the exam through group discussion, small activities, quizzes and practice tests. Participants are expected to join with Video on via Zoom and actively engage and participate in our program.

If you are taking the NCIDQ examination this Spring(April 2022), take advantage of this amazing program that will help you face the daunting task of studying with support from your peers and mentors. Sign up for each section of the exam separately, not required to sign up for all 3.

Listed below are the study session dates and descriptions for the IDFX, IDPX, and Practicum Workshop. Study material for each session is related to the Interior Design Reference Manual, Seventh Edition by David Kent Ballast. Additional materials have been recommended by the CIDQ (Practice tests and notecards) and we encourage the use of QPractice to supplement depending on your study techniques and needs. 

There are two intro sessions available prior to the start of the study program that are meant to get you fully prepared with everything to set you up for a successful studying experience. It is highly recommended to be at both intro sessions and at the very least one of them. The facilitators will not go over any of this information and it may be too late. So make sure you have the information needed.
