Congratulations to all designers who passed the Spring 2023 NCIDQ Exams!
Of all test takers, 476 became newly certified designers — and 355 were Qpractice members.
For all test-takers, the pass rates for each exam are released twice per year for the previous administration, along with the list of new NCIDQ Certificate holders.
For Spring 2023, 75% of the new NCIDQ Certificate holders were Qpractice members!
This is based on a complete name match and includes all who had purchased one or more subscriptions, courses, or workshops for their NCIDQ Exam prep for one, two, or all three of their exams!
As the fall exam season begins, we're always continuing to update and add even more to our subscription to help you pass the NCIDQ Exams!
This spring, CIDQ introduced a slightly different format for the Practicum Exam, including approximately 18-21 standalone questions that are not part of a specific case study.
These questions do not require using the case resources and may test any of the knowledge statements on the Practicum Blueprint. Qpractice has revised our final case studies to match this format.
We have continued to add to and update our question pool and now offer over 2000 questions for your exam prep!
Qpractice live workshops are a deep dive into the content for a specific exam, where we we cover test-taking strategy and walk through each question and answer with:
- Tips on how to avoid common mistakes
- How to choose when you don't know the answer
- Explanations for each correct answer
- The WHY and sourcing behind the correct answer
The workshops are offered live with audience Q&A only at select times each season, and recordings are available to you 24/7 along with your active Qpractice subscription. Your Qpractice monthly plan includes unlimited access to the workshops and replays, along with our online practice tests and quizzes.
Join us this year for a variety of live CEU events. We've selected content that not only covers relevant exam topics, but you can earn continuing education credit required by many professional organizations and by CIDQ to maintain your certificate.
See our schedule for the upcoming events to sign up — They're free!
As a Premium Access member, you can access courses for all three exams in one membership. This helps you make the most of the topical overlap between them. Keep in mind that all of the Practicum topics overlap with either IDFX or IDPX.
- 24 of 38 PRAC knowledge statements overlap with IDFX
- 14 of the 38 PRAC knowledge statements overlap with IDPX
Much of the content we're reviewing is essentially the same as far as studying goes, yet the major difference is with the type or format of questions and the level of detail and application.
We show you exactly how this applies in each lesson at the bottom, along with relevant work experience and your reading review.
By studying together, we can have more meaningful and helpful discussions in the study group led by our team of NCIDQ Certified interior designers. We also cover a variety of member questions for each exam during live office hours. This helps us benefit from the group's collective wisdom so that we can help each other.
We've designed the structure to accommodate everyone, whether:
- you're just taking one exam and want to purchase exam season access
- you're planning on taking two or more exams over the next year, or
- you plan to study for both the spring and fall exams
