Meeting your professional obligations as an architect requires keeping your skills current and staying up-to-date with the latest technology. It is for this reason that nearly all state boards of architecture require that licensees complete some amount of mandatory continuing education (MCE) to keep their membership valid. South Dakota has one of the more extensive MCE requirements, as all working professionals must complete 30 hours of AIA-approved training every two-year renewal period. Of these, 20 must be in a technical subject that furthers professional development. The remaining 10 must be dedicated to professional management.
Fortunately, architects have the option of earning South Dakota AIA credits online through approved webinars and structured self-study courses. That's where Lorman Education Services can help. We are an AIA-approved continuing education provider with one of the most extensive catalogues of quality programming that can be accessed from any computer or mobile device.
