There are no transcripts for the state. It is the responsibility of the Registered Providers for the state of Florida to report the participants CEH's to the state. All architects are responsible for retaining proof of participation in all CE courses in case of audit. All proof should be retained for three years following renewal.
What is the difference between Self Designed Activity and Self-Reported Programs?
Self-Designed Activity is an educational activity designed by the learner, such as reading, viewing videos and using CD-ROMS. It is not acceptable for HSW credit and recommended for a minimum of three hours. Self-Reported Program is a structured activity offered by non-AIA Registered Providers. Documentation of attendance/participation is required when reporting this as a state licensure requirement.
What qualifies for Health, Safety and Welfare?
Health is aspects of architecture that have salutary effects among users of buildings or sites and address environmental issues.
Safety is aspects of architecture intended to limit or prevent accidental injury or death among users of buildings or sites.
Welfare is aspects of architecture that engender positive emotional responses among, or enable equal access by, users of buildings or sites.
Is the 12 Hour HSW requirement in addition to the 18 LUH's for AIA?
No. Even though AIA records by Learning Unit Hours, they require that 12 hours of the 18 LUH's be in HSW.
