What to Expect From AIA CES Registered Providers


The American Institute of Architects is dedicated to meeting and facilitating the needs of architects on a worldwide scale. One of the most recent and growing needs of architects is that of meeting Mandatory Continuing Education (MCE) requirements either for AIA, state licensure or in many cases, both.

Architectural boards in 42 states, 10 Canadian Provinces and 16 Countries have implemented MCE for re-licensure. Statistically, the average architect holds multiple state licenses. States with MCE recognize the AIA CES as the primary source of professional development for their licensed architects.

If you are responsible for scheduling educational programs for your chapter members or staff, please be aware of the guidelines to which AIA CES Providers must adhere in order to remain active in the program.   Below are some documents that you might find useful to help you understand the expectations of presenters of AIA CES programs and some guidelines for program formats.
