Professional accreditation plays an integral role in any industry and the implementation of mandatory licensing for Building Designers is essential to the recognition and longevity of the profession. Until Western Australia introduces laws requiring building designers to be licensed, DMN, as Australia’s peak body for building designers has introduced a voluntary accreditation program for members. 

In the meantime, DMN continues to work with the Department of Mines, Industry Regulations & Safety to ensure that licensing for building designers is incorporated as part of the Building Confidence Reforms. 

To ensure Building Designers are afforded the recognition of their professional capabilities and expertise, the Design Matters National Accreditation programme has been developed by members for members. It gives clients of building designers confidence to know that the person designing their project is recognised as skilled and knowledgeable in their field. 

It is expected that should registration become mandatory in Western Australia, the DMN Accreditation program is so robust that it will be recognised as a pathway for practitioners seeking licensing.   

The Program has been designed to raise the level of recognition of building designers.  It is a comprehensive program that provides pathways for improvement by offering access to workshops, CPD, experienced mentors and free templates enabling members to properly prepare for accreditation. 

Building Confidence and Trust

 As a DMN Accredited Building Designer, your business becomes instantly recognisable as having gained a superior level of expertise within the industry. It demonstrates not only that you are competent but also that you are committed to adhering to state and federal industry standards by investing in your profession. It builds trust and confidence with your (potential) clients by providing tangible evidence that you will deliver a successful outcome.

Technical Knowledge

 Being a DMN Accredited Building Designer is an asset to your business when responding to projects listed for tender. It demonstrates that, by maintaining accreditation you have kept your knowledge and skillset up to date and have been recognised for your proven technical ability in your sector. It shows that you are serious about your profession and have met the standards that are required within the chosen tier of building design across technical drawing, industry standards, legislation and technology. It’s a reliable indicator of your competence and professionalism.

Gain a marketing advantage

 DMN accreditation is a valuable marketing tool when it comes to business growth and competitive advantage.  DMN Accredited building designers have an advantage over their competitors because they have been meticulously tested by a nationally recognised industry body and successfully met (or exceeded) their standards.

DMN Accredited Building Designers are published in a directory on our website giving any potential clients greater peace of mind during their selection process.
