New Mexico Architecture Continuing Education Requirements


The New Mexico Board of Examiners for Architects requires New Mexico-registered architects to complete 24 hours of continuing education every two years.New Mexico Flag

  • CE Requirement and CE cycle:  12 CEHs (Continuing Education Hours) per year for 24 CEHs in the two-year period immediately preceding the renewal date.  All CEHs must address health, safety and welfare issues (HSW). 
  • Renewal Date: December 31 of odd-numbered years (e.g. December 31, 2015)
  • Acceptable Coursework: The New Mexico Board does NOT pre-approve courses or providers. It is the registrant's responsibility to determine  if an activity meets the Board's criteria as summarized in this post and - most importantly - as detailed on Board's website. 
  • Reporting of Credits:  Providers CANNOT report continuing education credits earned to the New Mexico Board. However, registrants - as part of the renewal process - MUST turn in the continuing education report form attesting to the fulfillment of all continuing education requirements. 
  • Tracking of Credits: Registrants are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities. Did you know? Design Arts Seminars keeps track of the courses you take with us and provides you with online access to your transcript saving you both time and money, especially in case of audit.
  • Audit: A random sample of registrants will be selected for an in-depth audit to verify compliance with continuing education requirements.
  • Carry-over credits: not permitted.
