Thank you for your interest in our 30 Credit Interior Design certificate program. We have great news in that we are currently operating our classes 100% online. This is where students connect to live lectures, discussions with other students, and group learning activities in an interactive setting, but from the safety of their own home. Our online program is 100% approved by ACCSC, the State of Arizona, and the Department of Education for any new enrollments.
Please know that we have invested tremendous time and resources over the last few years to update our curriculum completely for distance learning course delivery. Our preparation for online courses started long before coronavirus impacted our school in March last year. We feel that our updated curriculum is ready for prime time and is a significant advantage for our students to learn modern techniques and computer-based tools that are currently utilized in the field of Interior Design. Examples include SketchUp® software used in Computer-Aided Drafting & Space Planning and creating Digital Color and Mood Boards for student portfolios.
Courses in the Interior Design program are taught semester based, with each semester being 15 weeks long. This allows students to immerse themselves in each subject for maximum learning effectiveness. Each course offered at AIID is designed to familiarize the student with the historical and technological developments that lead to contemporary tastes and applications of color, materials, and styles.
The Interior Design staff at AIID is made up of experienced Interior Designers who take great pride in the development of each student.
The objective of the program is to train the student for an entry-level position as an Interior Designer.
Students may enroll and begin their program at AIID three times a year:
