Continuing Education (Webinars)

AIA Georgia holds in-person and online continuing education courses to help inform, update, and aid our architects in their professional work. In order to remain licensed architects must satisfy a number of approved continuing education courses by a date chosen by their State licensing boards. All AIA Georgia posted courses are AIA approved and will be submitted for credits.

At the end of each course, an official PDF certificate will be sent to your email. This certificate will be followed with submission of credits to the AIA CES system within a weeks time. Anyone with an active AIA membership number can access their transcript. To access your transcript, click here.
