AIA & state requirements
Architects are required to earn continuing education (CE) credits each year to fulfill AIA membership and state licensure renewal requirements.
Every year, AIA members earn 1.35 million hours of continuing education (CE) through AIA-approved providers. Learn more about AIA’s continuing education program and find custom tools and resources to help you develop highly effective courses.
Track your continuing education activity, including AXP hours, with the AIA transcript. Take a course through AIAU, at an AIA event, or through any AIA-approved CE provider, and your transcript will be automatically updated with your CE credit. The AIA transcript is accepted by nearly all state licensing boards.
