For AIA Members - What is AIA/CES

AIA/CES is a continuing education system developed by the AIA to emphasize and record participation in professional learning activities.
AIA/CES enables architects to keep current, master new knowledge and skills, plan for the future, and responsibly meet the role society entrusts to a professional. The program also allows members to fulfill a requirement for AIA membership and meet any state mandatory continuing education requirement.
