From incorporating new technology in a meaningful way to planning for the future effects of climate change, Florida's architects face a number of pressing issues that will impact the way they do business in the years to come. Ongoing professional training and skills development is one of the best ways to prepare yourself to meet these challenges.
It's also a requirement of maintaining your professional license. The Florida Board of Architecture and Interior Design, in consultation with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), has mandated that all professionals in the state complete 24 credit hours of training every two-year period.Lorman Education Services is a leading provider of continuing education for architects, engineers, lawyers and other professionals. We offer AIA-approved courses for Florida architects, covering some of the most pressing issues facing the discipline today. With our training, you can not only fulfill your biennial continuing education requirements but also gain valuable skills that will position you for future success.
Meeting Florida's Training Requirements
Of the 24 credits required each renewal period, 2 must cover the Florida state building code. The remainder, however, can be earned through any course addressing a topic related to health, safety and welfare in the built environment. This is a deliberately broad requirement that allows architects to design a course of study that will offer the most professional benefit.
Lorman Education Services provides a number of convenient ways to earn Florida AIA credits online. Previous courses have included "The Florida Building Code and Florida Building Codes Act," "Current Issues in Florida Plat and Subdivision Law" and other topics related to the practice of architecture in the Sunshine State. As well, many of our courses cover issues from a nationwide perspective, providing an in-depth look at the trends, concerns and best practices shared by professionals across the country.
Our Florida AIA courses include live training programs, which are hosted from our website and can be accessed from anywhere in the state. Led by our expert faculty, our training programs are a great way to interact with others in your field, without taking time away from your practice to attend in-person training.
If you prefer to learn at your own pace, we also have an extensive archive of previously recorded courses that can be downloaded or streamed at any time.
