Who notifies Arkansas of my architect continued education?

At registration time, each architect shall complete and submit an affidavit prescribed by the board attesting to his or her fulfillment of the required continuing education hours during the preceding calendar year.

Are AIA approved classes accepted as architect continuing education by Arkansas?


Do I need to complete continuing education requirements for my AIA membership?

YES, as an Architect member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), 18 learning unit hours are required per calendar year for membership renewal.  Of these 18 hours, at least 12 hours must be in subjects designated as Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW).

I have extra hours, can I apply them to the next renewal cycle?

No carryover of continuing education hours from the previous calendar year is permitted
