The exam to license Class I Designers will take place on August 1, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Community College of Rhode Island's Knight Campus in Warwick. A pre-examination information session will be held Thursday, July 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at a place to be announced.

The Class II exam will be administered from 8 a.m. to noon; the Class III exam will be administered from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. A pre-examination information session for the Class II and III exams will be held on Friday, July 14 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at a place to be announced.
