Keep your CHID credential current by recertifying.

Recertification validates your knowledge base with the most up-to-date assessment, assures your continuing competence as CHID Certified Healthcare Interior Designer®, and maintains the standard for the profession.

Certificants due to recertify are required to earn 10 continuing education units (CEU) and submit a $375 fee with their application every two years. In preparation, we encourage you to review the Recertification Handbook. Certificants who do not renew by their recertification deadline will no longer be able to use the CHID credential.
