It's been a long seven years (wait, maybe more), but it was totally worth it. I am officially a Certified Kitchen Designer and over the moon about it.
The premiere hallmark for kitchen and bath professionals, NKBA Certification is based on written examinations and industry experience. NKBA certified designers must also meet mandatory continuing education requirements annually. To earn CKD certification, the professional must document a minimum of seven years of industry experience, successfully complete 60 NKBA Education hours, submit two professional affidavits and two client referrals, and pass the design portion of the NKBA Certification exam.

What's next? Certified Bath Designer, of course! So, CHEERS!
