August, 2014 Classes

AIA Seattle presents over 50 continuing education events per year, all of them at nominal or reduced cost to AIA members. A current class listing is below. For future classes see the Calendar page.

All registered Architect Members (except those with Emeritus status) must complete 18 Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) and at least 12 in topics related to health, safety and welfare. Learn more about AIA's continuing education requirements.

However, in order to maintain your license in the state of Washington, all registered architects (this includes practicing Emeritus members) must complete 24 Continuing Education Hours every two years and at least 16 must address public health, safety, and welfare. For a complete description of this new requirement, click here.
