Hawaii Architect Continuing Education Requirements
Micène Fontaine, April 3, 2020
Hawaii-licensed architects are required to complete 16 hours of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every 2 years. All must pertain to topics in Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW).
- CE Requirement: 16 CEUs in HSW subjects every 2 years.
- Renewal Date: April 30 of even years. (i.e. 2022, 2024 etc.)
- CE Reporting Cycle: Biennial - Credits must be earned between May 1 of the renewal year and April 30 of the next renewal year (i.e. May 1, 2020 - April 30, 2022).
- Acceptable Coursework: The Hawaii Board of Professional Engineers, Architects, Surveyors, and Landscape Architects does not pre-approve courses or providers. Courses approved by the AIA under the HSW designation are generally accepted. However, it is the licensee’s responsibility to use their professional judgment to determine if an activity meets the criteria of the Board.
- Reporting of Credits: Licensees are not required to submit documentation with the application for renewal.
- Tracking of Credits: Records of continuing education should be kept for at least 4 years from the date of completion.
- Audit: The Board may conduct a random audit of Hawaii Architects. If audited, licensees will need to submit evidence of compliance with the CE requirements.
