Georgia Architect Continuing Education Requirements
Micène Fontaine, June 22, 2018
Georgia architects are required to complete 24 hours of Continuing Education every 2 years.
- CE Requirement: 24 Professional Development Units (PDUs), of which 16 must be in Public Protection Subjects (i.e. HSW) and acquired via structured educational activities (i.e. seminar, internet or correspondence course). The remaining 8 credits may be earned in related practice subjects (non-HSW) via structured educational activities and/or earned in Public Protection Subjects via individually planned education activities (activity related to the registrant's profession but not designed and systematically presented as a continuing education activity e.g. publication of an article or book, making a professional or technical presentation, teaching, etc).
- Renewal Date: June 30 of odd-numbered years.
- CE Cycle: Biennial - 2 year period running from July 1 of odd-numbered years through June 30 of the following odd-numbered year (i.e.. July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2023).
- Acceptable Coursework: Use your professional judgment to determine if an activity meets the Georgia Board of Architects & Interior Designer'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 Georgia Board, neither can registrants (except in case of audit - see "audit" below).
- Tracking of Credits: Registrants are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities for at least 4 years.
- Audit: A random sample of registrants will be selected for an in-depth audit to verify compliance with continuing education requirements.
- Did you know? Design Arts Seminars reports credits electronically to the American Institute of Architects so you don’t have to. Check out the AIA Continuing Education Requirements.
