Continuing education requirements for South Carolina architects are established by the state’s Board of Architectural Examiners, based on recommendations from the American Institute of Architects (AIA). To remain in good standing with the board, all licensed professionals must complete 24 credit hours of approved training every two-year reporting period. Renewal deadlines for individual practitioners are on June 30 in odd years. For firms, training must be completed in even years by Aug. 31.
In South Carolina, AIA courses must cover a topic related to health, safety and welfare as it relates to the design, engineering and evaluation of buildings and related infrastructure. This is a deliberately broad requirement that allows professionals to choose courses that suit their interests, whether they involve staying current on building codes and zoning laws, learning best practices for green building or anything else.
