The AIA recognizes that continuing education in architecture is crucial to advancing and improving the profession. Architects need continuing education to maintain competency, to prepare for the future, to fulfill the continuing education requirements for AIA membership, and frequently to renew state licensure.
AIA architect members are required to complete eighteen (18) Learning Units (LU) hours of continuing education per year for membership renewal. Of those 18LU hours at least (12) must be on Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) topics, the remaining (6) credits may be on topics related to architecture, construction and engineering.
If you’re an AIA member, your transcript will be updated in CES Discovery within seven business days after you complete a course.
