HSW Self-Reporting Deadline is Jan. 31; HSW Requirement Now 12 Hours

As of January 1, 2012, all HSW credits must be obtained & reported through an AIA CES Provider. Self-reported activities will no longer be eligible for HSW credit; however, they will be accepted for "general" credit.

Members have until January 31, 2012, to self-report any remaining HSW or HSW/SD credits from 2011. Please make sure you don't lose any HSW credits earned in 2011.

You may self-report eligible activities online at CES Discovery. Log in using your email address and AIA password (usually your last name with the first letter capitalized.)


Beginning in January 2012, AIA architect members will be required to complete 12 hours of health, safety, and welfare (HSW) education, which includes four (4) hours of sustainable design (SD) education; previously 8 HSW hours were required.

The total number of continuing education hours required remains unchanged and is 18 hours. The AIA Board will re-evaluate the SD requirement in 2012. Emeritus members are not required to report any CES activities.


For more information, please contact AIA Member Care CES at 800-242-3837, option 3. Please note AIA National is on Eastern time (three hours later than Pacific.)
