Can I become a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD) or Certified Bath Designer (CBD) without a degree from a FIDER accredited program?
Yes. The traditional career-path for NKBA certification requires minimal industry experience and NKBA professional development courses regularly provided by NKBA. A NKBA Endorsed Program Graduate will automatically be granted 30 hours of NKBA Education and one year related experience which can be applied to any NKBA certification requirement. Students that complete their internship requirement in the Kitchen & Bath industry and submit a Graduation Verification Form will receive an additional one year of industry experience to be applied towards certification.
