Continuing Education for Building Professionals

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) plays an active role in the continuing education of its members by providing opportunities for members to maximize their professional skills through effective learning partnerships with Provider firms.

Continuing Education Sustainability Requirement

In January 2009, the AIA decided that all members needed to include four hours of sustainable design as part of their CE requirement. This will run until 2012, at which time it will be evaluated.

Sustainable design is achieved through an integrated design and delivery process that enhances the natural and built environment by using energy sensibly with a goal toward carbon neutrality, improves air and water quality, protects and preserves water and other resources, and creates environments, communities and buildings that are liveable, comfortable, productive, diverse, safe, and provide enduring value to our community and society as a whole.
