Continuing Education

Welcome to the AIA Orlando Continuing Education Page!
Continuing education is required for all registered architects who practice in the state of Florida and are members of AIA. The Florida Statutes require architects to complete continuing education for licensure, while the AIA requires it for membership. Each is recorded separately, but can be interchanged, within certain guidelines.

The state of Florida requires 24  CEHs, with 22 hours in HSW and 2 hours in Building Code biannually of every odd year. AIA requires 18 LU Hours, with 12 hours in HSW annually, due the end of the calendar year.

To obtain HSW or SD credits, members must take courses through AIA CES registered Providers. These courses may be taken through traditional, face-to-face classroom learning, or virtual learning.

Interaction Between The Two Systems

AIA Orlando and AIA Florida are Registered Providers

AIA will accept all registered and approved courses by AIA Registered Providers, (AIA Orlando & AIA Florida is a Registered Provider). Courses by non-AIA Providers or Self-Designed Activities can be submitted online at  AIA/CES Self-Report From.

AIA Orlando only registers its lectures, tours or seminars with the AIA, and not with the state of Florida, since the state of Florida automatically accepts all AIA registered and approved courses.

There are no transcripts for the state. It is the responsibility of the Registered Providers for the state of Florida to report the participants CEH's to the state. All architects are responsible for retaining proof of participation in all CE courses; which should be retained for three years following renewal.
