How do I get started?

How do I track/gain AIA learning units (LUs)?

Attend an AIA approved course, event, or complete a self-designed activity. AIA Components and AIA CES registered providers sponsor continuing education events. When you attend an event, follow the AIA registered architects lead by signing in with your name and temporary AIA number. The event provider is responsible for submitting your information to AIA, which maintains CES records. Following course completion, the provider will report your attendance using the Temporary AIA number that you used to sign in. Course providers are given ten (10) days from the date of the course to report all attendance.

If the activity was performed on your own, such as completing the questions for a continuing education article from Architect Magazine, then you are responsible for submitting a self-report form online to the AIA with your temporary AIA number.

How do I submit AIA Continuing Education learning units (LUs) for IDP Supplemental Experience hours?

Download your AIA transcript. You can download a copy of your AIA transcript by logging into the AIA CES Discovery website at any time (or request a transcript in writing, one free each year).

Report your hours in the NCARB Online Reporting System. Report your work through the Online Reporting System by adding new supplemental experience the "Experience Reports" tab. A PDF of your AIA transcript documenting completion of AIA-approved courses must be uploaded to the Online Reporting System at that time.

My temporary AIA number has expired – what do I do?
