Design and construction professionals earn AIA Continuing Education learning units by reading designated articles and sponsored sections in Architectural Record and on this site, and answering test questions at the end of each course.
Important: All Architectural Record articles and presentation courses may count towards the AIA continuing education requirement. All active registered architect AIA members may complete their annually required Continuing Education Credits through Architectural Record. This includes all 18 Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) each year. Of the 18 CEHs, 12 hours must address health, safety, and welfare (HSW).
LEED professionals earn Green Building Certification Institute’s (GBCI) Continuing Education hours to fulfill LEED credential maintenance requirements by reading designated articles and sponsored sections in Architectural Record and GreenSource and on this site, and answering test questions at the end of each course.
AIA Credit Reporting
Depending on when you take a course online in Architectural Record's Continuing Education Center, it can take between 1 to 2 weeks for your credits to appear on your AIA member transcript. For example, if you take a course on a Monday, your credits will appear on your transcript by Thursday of the following week. Please check your transcript regularly for updates.
GBCI Credit Reporting
GBCI Credential Maintenance Program participants must self-report their GBCI CE hours through “My Credentials” at www.gbci.org. Keep a copy of your certificate of completion for your records.
In compliance with AIA Continuing Education guidelines
Certificates of completion: To comply with state licensing mandatory continuing education issues, we have established a system to provide certificates of completion to participants who request this documentation on their reporting form. A passing score of 80% on the test answers is required for successful completion.
