Course Reviewer’s Corner
An Update on the 2013 Course Review Process
Beginning in January, there will be a few minor changes to the course review process due to the decision by the Board to sunset the sustainable design credit requirement. For more information on the decision, please reference William Murillo’s Latest Continuing Education Update.
In 2013, when you are submitting a course for review, Sustainable Design (SD) will no longer be a credit designation option. If you are submitting a course on sustainability or high performance design, please select the HSW credit designation as sustainable design courses fall under the HSW category. All courses previously submitted under the SD designation will now be listed as Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW).
That said, we encourage our Providers to continue to develop courses on sustainable design topics as AIA members are always interested in resources and information about environmentally-friendly and sustainable building practices.
