What are the AIA membership requirements for continuing education?
AIA Architect and International Associate members are required to complete 18 learning units (LUs) of continuing education every year. Of those 18 LUs, at least 12 must be for approved health, safety, and welfare (HSW) courses. Architect Emeritus members are required to complete one (1) LU each membership year. Associate and Allied members do not have a continuing education requirement.
New members are not required to complete the AIA continuing education requirement until their first full year as a member. For example, someone who joins in June will not be required to complete 18 LUs until the following year.

Earn your Architecture License!
To practice architecture in the United States, you must earn a license from the regulatory board in the jurisdiction where you want to practice. Each of the 55 U.S. states and territories, or jurisdictions, sets their own requirements for licensure in that jurisdiction, but they all include three core components: education, experience, and examination.
NCARB recommends and encourages national standards for these three areas, which many licensing boards choose to adopt—although others set their own unique qualifications.
