New York Build Networking

AIA/CES TRAINING WORKSHOPS

Attend a range of AIA/CES approved workshops across two days to gain insight into the developments within Building Solutions & Materials, Safety, Sustainable Building & Building Regulation, Marketing Tools, Business Skills & Innovation, Architecture, Design & BIM. 

AIA and state requirements for continuing education

Licensed architects must earn continuing education credits each year to fulfill AIA membership requirements. You may also need to complete continuing education requirements to renew your state license(s).

If you’re working on getting licensed, some AIA-approved courses count toward the experience requirement for licensure.

We offer a variety of ways to earn continuing education credits that make meeting your goals and licensing requirements interesting and convenient. 

Annual benchmarks

AIA measures continuing education in Learning Units (LUs). One hour of continuing education earns one LU. AIA Architect members are required to complete 18 LUs from registered AIA/CES providers each year. Of the 18 LUs, 12 must be in the topic areas of health, safety and welfare (HSW).

New York Build offers a range of AIA CES approved training workshops across the two days. See below for the full list of Chicago Build's AIA CES sessions or click here to view the full 2020 conference program. For more information on AIA state requirements, click here.

A full list of AIA / CES sessions can be found below. Sessions will either be accredited 1 LU or 1 LU/HSW. Listings will be updated as approval is received. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact marketing@newyorkbuildexpo.com
