As e-mail will be the primary method of communication, please make sure we have your current e-mail address, and read the e-mails as they arrive!
The primary and secondary point of contacts (POCs) will receive our monthly e-newsletter, CES Provider Connection, which serves to keep you current on many of the changes, trends, and opportunities associated with the architecture education arena and will include links to the AIA/CES Provider Web site to review newly posted materials. We extend the subscription to all associates in our system, so feel free to add anyone to the list serv.
As the designated primary POC, you must carefully review all sections of the AIA CES Provider Manual. Please distribute this information to everyone associated with your Provider account to ensure they are as familiar with the procedures as you are.
In addition to reviewing the Provider Manual, you must attend at least one AIA CES Training workshop or complete our Webinar Series for New Providers to better understand our policies, procedures, and CES Discovery Learning Management System. Please refer to our New Provider Training Page for the most up to date training schedule and registration information.
We also encourage you to work with the AIA Chapters in your area, which have direct contact with AIA members and serve their educational needs.
Annual renewals are processed by December 31 of the current year. If you do not renew your Provider subscription each year, your access to CES Discovery will be denied. Course information and attendance submitted by lapsed Providers will not be accepted.
You are neither 'accredited' nor 'certified' as Providers, nor are your courses 'accredited' or 'certified.' You are an AIA CES Approved Provider that can now register courses to deliver to architects for credit. This distinction is important when you are publicizing yourselves and your courses because the AIA is not a certifying or accrediting body.
