The American Institute of Architects and its affiliated providers offer a number of opportunities for AIA members to participate in online learning to further their knowledge base and meet AIA CES requirements for AIA membership. The majority of State Licensing Boards who have mandatory continuing education (MCE) requirements also accept distance education for architects. Particularly if you hold licenses in more than one State, it is important to check with your State Licensing Board to confirm specific requirements for your license renewal.
