Regarding the AIA transcripts and CE credit with the AIA:
While our courses have been approved by the FBAID and other various boards associated with the Florida Department of Professional Regulation (DBPR), we are not associated with nor approved as a CE provider for the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We cannot submit any courses for credit with the AIA. Previously the AIA allowed Architects to print off a copy of the course completion certificate from a non-AIA provider and “self-report” the hours. Since 2014 this is no longer an option and the AIA Board no longer accepts Optional Self-Directed studies from non-AIA providers for CE credit.
Course Expiry: You will have access to the online courses for 2 years giving you plenty of time to complete them at your own pace, and your completion certificates will always be available to you.
System Requirements: Our courses are designed to run on most computers and mobile devices. If you have trouble with a course, our technical support team is ready and willing to assist. To view system requirements, Click Here!
