Be Productive During Holiday Down Time

For many states the architect license renewal deadline is December 31st, and if you’re anything like me, you procrastinated on completing your continued education. Make sure your license is going to stay valid as we count down 2016.

If you live in Alabama, Alaska, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, and Wyoming you may be risking your license validation starting January 1st 2017 if you haven’t fulfilled your state requirements. So, while at home between cups of hot cocoa, finish off the required continued education to start the new year right.

Continued education requirements for states with December 31st  2016 deadlines:

Alabama:

  • 12 hours of continued education per year all related to Health, Safety, and Welfare
  • Additional 6 hours for American Institute of Architects members

Alaska:

  • 24 hours of continued education all pertaining to Health, Safety, and Welfare
  • This will also complete the AIA requirement of 18 hours

Louisiana:

  • 12 hours of continued education on Health, Safety, and Welfare
  • An additional 6 hours for American Institute of Architects members

Missouri (biennially depending on when the license was issued):

  • 24 hours of continued education, 16 of which pertaining to Health, Safety, and Welfare
  • This will also complete the AIA requirement of 18 hours

Nebraska (if your last name begins with a letter between L through Z):

  • 24 hours of continued education, 16 of which pertaining to Health, Safety, and Welfare
  • This will also complete the AIA requirement of 18 hours

Nevada:

  • 8 hours of continued education pertaining to Health, Safety, and Welfare with 2 of which pertaining to architectural code
  • An additional 10 hours for AIA members

Ohio:

  • 12 hours of continued education per year all related to Health, Safety, and Welfare
  • An additional 6 hours for American Institute of Architects members

Oregon:

  • 24 hours of continued education with 12 pertaining to Health, Safety, and Welfare
  • This will also complete the AIA requirement of 18 hours

 Wyoming (biennially depending on when the license was issued):

  • 24 hours of continued education all pertaining to Health, Safety, and Welfare
  • This will also complete the AIA requirement of 18 hours

With only two weeks left in the year, if you haven’t completed your architect continuing education, you still have an opportunity with the online courses. Be sure to look for schools that have interesting, up-to-date topics to offer, as well as those that are approved by the State in which you are licensed.  If you are an AIA member, look for architect license renewal courses or course packages that apply to both.

One last note of advice, consider schools that offer a variety of learning options, such as video, narrated or text courses.
