The ever-evolving practice of architecture demands well-trained professionals. It’s for this reason that ongoing continuing education is a requirement of nearly every state board in the United States. Taking time for training ensures busy professionals remain at the top of their field, and stay fully versed in the latest technologies, laws and other factors that affect how they work.
Lorman Education Services offers online compliance training for architects that meets your annual CE requirements while keeping you up-to-date on the latest changes to state and federal building codes, accessibility requirements and more. We offer several convenient training options, including both live programs and streaming content, so you don’t have to take time away from your practice to attend classes.
Compliance Training Requirements for Architects
The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) has recommended that member boards adopt a minimum requirement of 12 hours of health, safety and welfare (HSW) continuing education training each year. HSW courses cover a wide range of topics related to the soundness and safety of a building or built environment. These credits can be earned through approved online training, including programs and self-study options.
Not all state architecture boards have adopted the 12-HSW credit requirement. For example, compliance training for architects in California involves completing five credit hours of accessibility programming every two years. Check with your local professional organization for requirements in your state.
