Continuing Education

Georgia-Pacific’s AIA-registered courses help professionals meet requirements for continuing education. AIA-member architects can earn Health Safety Welfare (HSW) continuing education credits for successfully completing these programs. Non-members can also take the online courses for CEU credit. At present, all states that require continuing education accept the AIA courses for the MCE state requirements.
