istock_000005577649_150.jpgInterior design professionals have a challenge to not only keep up to date with a broad range of topics, they must do so to maintain their professional status. 

They want to make sure that their valuable time and money is well spent on seminars that provide important and practical information that they can use with their clients.

idcec_logo_250.jpgThe 4 major interior design associations in North America (IDC, ASID, IDEC, IIDA), are served under the central entity of IDCEC (Interior Design Continuing Education Council) to “promote lifelong learning and professional development”. They set rigorous criteria for accrediting continuing education courses, which can be delivered anywhere in North America.

 

Dayle has accreditation for 3 of her seminars:

Rugs 101 #IDC 30086 for 0.2 CEU 

- technical & practical aspects of using beautiful rugs & carpeting for sustainable design

Fabrics 101 #IDC 30085 for 0.2 CEU

- technical & practical aspects of selecting beautiful sustainable fabrics

Joy of Contracts #IDC 30087 for 0.2 CEU 

- How to make the experience ‘win-win’ for you & your clients

Here are what seminar attendees have said:

Fabulous – like an entire college course in one evening! Dayle is clear, organized, and an ‘excellent presenter’. I appreciate the fact that she is committed to educating design professionals about the best green practices in a time effective and enjoyable way.”

MaryLynne Meschino, Toronto, ON

Have you ever considered coming west Dayle? I am teaching sustainable design in our Interior Decorating program here at Bow Valley College. Calgary is somewhat slow in adopting the "green" philosophy but hopefully the younger students will take up the gauntlet. The biggest challenge in Calgary is purchasing local. We do have 2 upholstery manufacturers here, which I am grateful for, but everything else comes from a distance. Vancouver is the closest to source from. <br />Unfortunately we don't do too well with the 10 mile diet either. <br />Anyway, if you do head west please let us know as I would love to take one of your courses.<br />Janet Mah
