Making time for training can be a challenge anywhere. In Alaska, where in-person courses may require extensive travel, it can represent a serious impediment to your practice. At the same time, however, there’s clear value to keeping your skills current. Not only is continuing professional education a requirement for practicing architecture in Alaska, it’s also an excellent way to manage risk, improve the caliber of service you offer and build your skills so you can explore potentially lucrative new career opportunities.
At Lorman Education Services, we know how important training is for professionals around the country. Since 1987, we have been working to deliver innovative distance learning programs that put a world-class education at your fingertips, no matter where you are. Our AIA courses help Alaska architects meet mandatory training requirements while delivering useful, incisive content for professionals at every stage of their career.
Alaska’s Training Requirements
Alaska developed its continuing professional education requirements based on guidelines established by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Under these guidelines, all architects, engineers and land surveyors working in the state must complete 24 hours of approved training every two years. In order to qualify for credit, Alaska AIA courses must:
- Address public health, safety and welfare by providing instruction in the design and planning of building works and other infrastructure projects
- Be relevant to the practice of professional architecture, whether from an engineering, ethical or management standpoint
- Be designed to improve, maintain or expand the participant’s professional skills
- Be well organized and delivered by a qualified professional
Alaska AIA courses can be completed in-person or through distance learning self-study. For professionals in Alaska, this is an important benefit that greatly expands the available selection of training options. With Lorman Education Services, you can earn approved Alaska AIA credits online at your convenience, meeting your biennial training requirements while benefitting from the nuanced, informed programming offered by our faculty.
