AIA announcement

American Institute of Architects (AIA) approves AEE as a training provider for CEU’s.

The Association of Energy Engineers is now an approved training provider in the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program. The AIA requires that registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LUs) hours of continuing education annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure. Statistically, architects hold multiple state licenses. Most states with MCE requirements recognize the AIA/CES as the primary source of professional development for their licensed architects. This allows AIA members to present their AIA/CES transcripts (and non-members AIA/CES Certificates of Completion) to licensing boards to satisfy state requirements. In becoming an AIA/CES Registered Provider, AEE is committed to a system-wide, top-down commitment to quality professional continuing education and sound administration. The AIA/CES offers providers of professional continuing education myriad opportunities to award CES Learning Units (LUs) and provide valuable information and guidance, while bypassing the time-consuming process of registering their courses with individual states.
