To ensure architects are compliant with zoning laws and other regulations and rules, most states require architects to secure and renew licenses regularly. In addition, there are professional associations designed to ensure architects follow industry-accepted best practices.
In Rhode Island, both The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Division of Design Professionals require architects to secure ongoing training and education — including training in HSW, or Health, Safety and Welfare. In order for architects to renew their licenses, all required training must be completed by a specific deadline.
Multi-Faceted Benefits for Continuing Education
While Rhode Island AIA courses are required, they are also beneficial to architects in other ways. In a competitive and ever-changing field, ongoing training gives architects a business advantage by allowing professionals to offer an ever-expanding selection of services as well as the services customers currently demand. As zoning laws, environmental laws and other laws change, education helps architects stay compliant. Architects can also learn about new technologies and materials through online training. For example, they can learn about new smart home technologies, new materials and new best practices. As demand for energy-efficient homes increases, architects can rely on continuing education to help them deliver the types of building designs customers want.
