While most architecture professionals recognize the benefits of continuing education for career advancement and aptitude, busy and overextended lifestyles demand that professional learning be easily accessible and effective. As time dedicated to learning is at a premium, convenient educational programs take priority for AIA members. Design and implementation are valuable criteria for administering continuing education courses, yet it is crucial to evaluate your course’s content for quality and applicability to member’s needs. Whether you are an architecture firm providing education to staff or manufacturer marketing a product to the industry, it is important to conduct courses which are both engaging and informative. This month’s Provider Spotlight highlights the continuing education programs of architecture firms Lord, Aeck & Sargent, Inc. and EYP Architecture & Engineering, past winners of the CES Award for Excellence.
