Texas Architect Continuing Education Requirements

Micène Fontaine, September 29, 2020

Texas State Continuing EducationRegistered Texas architects, interior designers, and landscape architects are required to complete 12 hours of Continuing Education every year.
  • CE Requirement:  12 CEPHs (Continuing Education Program Hours) annually. All 12 CEPHs must qualify as Health, Safety & Welfare (HSW) credits. At least 1 CEPH must be related to Barrier-free Design♿ and at least 1 CEPH must be related to Sustainable or Energy-efficient Design🍃
  • CE Reporting Cycle: Calendar year (January 1 to December 31).
  • Acceptable Coursework: The Texas Board of Architectural Examiners does not pre-approve courses or providers of continuing education. Use your professional judgment to determine if an activity meets the Board's criteria as summarized on the Board's website.
  • Reporting of Credits:  Providers CANNOT report continuing education credits earned to the Texas Board. Registrants must use the CEPH Log to accurately track and report courses. 
  • Tracking of Credits: Members are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities for at least 5 years from date of completion. 
  • Audit: A random sample of registrants will be audited. If audited (and only if audited), registrants will be asked to produce proof of compliance in the form of a CEPH log and corresponding certificate of continuing education or transcript showing courses completed.
  • Carry-over Credits: A Texas Architect is permitted to carry-over 12 CEPHs from the previous year in excess of the required credits for renewal.
