Continuing Education

General Information

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) was created in 1857. Through education, government advocacy, community redevelopment, and public outreach activities, the AIA works toward a public environment that is responsive to the people it serves while representing the professional interests of America’s architects.

The AIA recognizes that continuing education in architecture is crucial to advancing and improving the profession. Architects need continuing education to maintain competency, to prepare for the future, to fulfill the continuing education requirements for AIA membership, and frequently to renew state licensure.

What Is My Annual Requirement?

As a condition of membership renewal, all active AIA members must successfully complete 18 learning units each calendar year, with at least 12 of the 18 learning units in subject areas relating to health, safety, and welfare (HSW). Visit FAQs for information regarding HSW.

Need LU's?
