New Mexico Architect Continuing Education Requirements
Micène Fontaine, August 15, 2019
New Mexico architects are required to complete 12 hours of Continuing Education every year for a total of 24 hours for biennial renewal.
- CE Requirement: 24 Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) biennially, 12 per calendar year. All CEHs must address Health, Safety & Welfare topics (HSW).
- Renewal Date: December 31 biennially according to your birth year. New Mexico-registered architects born in even numbered years renew by December 31st of even years and those born in odd years renew by December 31st of odd years.
- CE Reporting Cycle: Licensees are required to earn 12 CEHs each calendar year so that all 24 hours have been earned by December 31 of your renewal year.
- Acceptable Coursework: The New Mexico Board of Examiners for Architects 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 for at least 3 years after registration is awarded.
- 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.
