These valuable workshops are meant for anyone interested in the Provider Program or current Providers wanting to know more about CES basics, best practices and “non-negotiables”, CES Web site navigation, marketing strategies and instructional systems design (ISD) tips. We also focus in on how to develop learning objectives and effective PowerPoints so you can design your programs properly in the context of the CES policy.

PLEASE NOTE: We will be conducting random program audits/reviews. Be sure you recognize and implement the new guidelines per the 2009 Provider Program Manual including the Quality Assurance Slides and collect signatures from presenters on the Quality Commitment Statement.
All Providers are eligible to be audited by AIA CES. These audits may be random or they may be initiated due to feedback from the field about non-compliant programs, delivery or reporting issues. If you are selected for an audit you will receive instructions regarding the information required and deadlines within which to comply with requests. Please take these requests seriously. The purpose of these audits is for AIA CES to ensure that Providers are maintaining compliance in development, delivery and reporting of quality education programs in the field. Together, it is our responsibility to ensure that your audience receives appropriate and timely credit to maintain their AIA membership and state licenses.
Please be aware that we are encouraging firms and chapters to ask for "deliverables" and to evaluate Provider programs using an audit form. The feedback we receive from these sources creates a checks and balance system that ensures consistency and compliance in delivering quality educational programs. If you would like to be proactive in acknowledging what information may be asked of you prior to delivering a CE program and to see how you may be evaluated, download What to Expect From AIA CES Registered Providers that we have made available to firms and AIA Chapters.
Each year when you renew your Provider status, you are directed to download the new CES Provider Manual that has changes and updates which should be incorporated into all existing programs and internal personnel training. All updated procedures, forms and information can be found in the Provider Program Menu which can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection using your Provider Number and assigned password for the year.
Thank you for working with us to maintain consistent and quality delivery of AIA CES programs that the architects you are serving deserve. If you have questions about the audit process or would like to be audited to receive feedback on how your are currently developing, delivering or administering programs, contact AIA CES.
If you are a new Provider or a new point of contact and would like to learn how to make best use of your partnership with AIA CES, consider attending an upcoming Provider Workshop.
