Architects in Pennsylvania have a vital role to play. The buildings they design add to the beauty of our communities, and these buildings become where we work, play, learn and live. Structural safety is an essential component of an architect’s job, and best practices and standards change over the years.
Architecture is a dynamic and growing field. Environmental laws change how architects design buildings, especially as we become more aware of how building design can help us become more energy efficient. The popularity of smart homes and new technologies mean architects need to be aware of how fully “wired” homes and technologies work, while zoning laws are always changing. In all these areas and in others, architects need to be fully compliant while helping clients create spaces they will love.
The American Institute of Architects (AIA), the PA State Architects Licensure Board and other bodies exist to ensure architects in Pennsylvania and beyond have the knowledge and skills to create designs that meet current laws and standards. The AIA and other bodies require that architects take Pennsylvania AIA courses or other continuing training to ensure the professionals can stay compliant with current regulations.
Finding the Right AIA Training
Of course, many architects are eager to get continuing education not just to renew their professional licenses but also to deliver the highest-quality services to their clients and develop their own interests. Since architecture changes as new materials, designs, trends and technologies are introduced, architects need to keep learning to stay competitive, compliant and fully engaged in their chosen field.
Of course, architects are busy professionals and not all can attend hours of live training to fulfill curiosity and licensing requirements. That’s why Lorman Education offers live training as well as mobile ways to secure Pennsylvania AIA credits online. No matter how you like to learn, we have training solutions to help you.
