Continuing Ed Provider Program

Continuing Education Provider (CEP) Program

YOUR COURSES CAN OFFER MANDATORY LEARNING UNITS  with our affordable, easy-to-use CE program

Due to numerous requests from both professional and affiliate members, ALA has a Continuing Education Program (CEP) that certifies Providers offering approved educational programs. ALA is a registered education provider for Illinois and most states. Therefore, architects attending ALA approved programs will be able to earn their required Learning Units (LU).

Our CEP program is simple, not expensive and a valuable marketing tool.

QUALITY CONTROL of the programs will be strict and adhered to through random audits and checks by members of the ALA’s Education Committee. In order for attendees to earn one LU, fifty minutes of each hour must contain NON-PROPRIETY information with a similar percentage on half hour increments. ALA mandates that programs offer technical information and not be sales presentations. ALA believes that presentation skills are extremely important and that presenters may become local technical resources.

If you are interested in becoming an ALA/CEP Provider, send a completed Form CEPP-1 along with payment to start the approval process. (You will be notified if not approved and payment refunded.) Please contact ALA at 847.382.0630 or with any questions.
