Interior Design: Part 1, Skills Competency Award (SCA)
Interior Design Part 1 Skills Competency Award
Interior Design focuses on the creation of interior environments that are both functional and pleasing. The field offers a variety of employment opportunities in kitchen and bath design studios and in interior materials and furniture stores.
The SBCC Interior Design Program, offered within the Drafting/CAD Department, provides comprehensive training for entry-level interior design positions. Certificated, professionally experienced instructors teach all program courses. Successful completion of each Interior Design (ID) course earns full college credit. Courses are offered with an open enrollment policy; they are open to both ID majors and non-majors.
Some Interior Design classes have corequisites. A corequisite is a class that must be taken at the same time or before taking the class to which it is a corequisite. DRFT 120 is a corequisite to ID101 and ID105, though it is advisable to take DRFT 120 before taking these classes. DRFT 120 must be taken before taking DRFT 130. Plan your schedule accordingly.
