North Carolina AIA Courses and Training
Although buildings can last for generations and centuries, architectural knowledge and skills are an ever-changing area. In fact, with an increasing awareness of environmental design and how architecture and structures affect health, architects need to become life-long learners — both to understand frequently updated regulations and to stay ahead of the competition.
In North Carolina, architects are mandated by local and state laws as well as professional bodies to abide by all relevant rules and regulations when designing and approving building plans. The American Institute of Architects (AIA), North Carolina Board of Architecture and other professional organizations require architects to stay aware of changes to environmental laws, municipal zoning regulations and other legislation potentially affecting architects. For this reason, the AIA and other bodies require architects to secure a specific amount of training each year.

Staying Compliant with AIA Training
For architects, AIA training offers the skills and education needed to become a stronger professional who can offer more to clients. At the same time, ongoing training is essential to stay complaint. In North Carolina, architects need to stay aware of flood zone construction rules, seismic design and other rules required for a coastal state that sees challenging weather. Proper training can support architects in meeting current standards and staying compliant with current rules.
North Carolina also requires annual renewal for architects under the North Carolina Board of Architecture. To secure renewal, architects must meet a specific number of continuing education hours.
