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 biennial 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.
