Licensed architects must earn continuing education credits each year to fulfill AIA membership requirements. You will also need to complete continuing education requirements to renew your state license.

If you’re working on getting licensed, some AIA-approved courses count toward the experience requirement for licensure.

AIA Miami offers a variety of ways to earn continuing education credits that make meeting your goals and licensing requirements interesting and convenient. AIA National’s transcript service makes it easy to track your progress.

AIA measures continuing education in Learning Units (LUs). One hour of continuing education earns one LU. AIA Architect members are required to complete 18 LUs from registered AIA/CES providers each year. Of the 18 LUs, 12 must be in the topic areas of health, safety and welfare (HSW).

Make sure to get credit

Look for AIA-approved providers to earn LUs that apply to your AIA requirements. When you take a course, provide your AIA member number and we’ll automatically update your AIA member transcript.

The State of Florida licensing board accepts the AIA transcript as verification that you have completed continuing education courses.
