Continuing Education FAQ
On Dec. 9, 2011, the AIA Board of Directors voted to modify the AIA’s continuing education requirement. AIA members are now required to complete 12 hours of health, safety, and welfare (HSW) education (previously 8 HSW hours were required). The total number of continuing education hours required remains unchanged and is 18 hours. Additionally, in the past, members were required to complete 4 SD hours. This credit requirement is no longer in place.
