Architects New Continuing Education Requirement
Continuing Education Requirement
On October 10, 2013, new administrative rules took effect requiring Architects to complete continuing education as a condition for license renewal. The first time continuing education will be required is for licensees with licenses expiring on Oct. 31, 2015. The licensees scheduled to renew in 2015 will be required to complete continuing education during the Nov. 1, 2013 to Oct. 31, 2015 renewal cycle and each renewal cycle thereafter. Licensees with licenses that expire on Oct. 31, 2014 will not be required to complete continuing education as a condition of renewal in 2014, but will need to complete continuing education during the Nov. 1, 2014 to Oct. 31, 2016 renewal cycle and each renewal cycle thereafter.
Licensees will not be required to send in proof of continuing education activities to the Department when renewing a license. However, a licensee must maintain records of continuing education hours earned for 4 consecutive years for audit purposes.
