Why is this important?‎

For the past 25 years, the state of Nevada imposed requirements that made it difficult ‎for a student graduating from an accredited architectural program or a registered ‎architect to become a licensed interior designer. A registered architect wishing to be a ‎licensed interior designer required those individuals to seek additional schooling to ‎fulfill the necessary requirements. The changes to AB434 makes it possible for ‎architects to become registered interior designers without completing more ‎coursework. ‎
