Continuing Education Provider
Due to numerous requests from both professional and affiliate members, ALA has a Continuing Education Program (CEP) that certifies Providers offering approved educational programs for ALA members and architect attendees. To learn more, visit our "Become a Provider" page.


Program Guidelines & Quality Control:

Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) program guidelines 
GBCI program guidelines - Provide documentation of program acceptace by GBCI for GBCI learning credits. 

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, 50 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.                       


We recommend all providers have AIA-approved continuing education courses, as most AIA education courses are accepted by most state licensing boards. If you are not an AIA continuing education provider, please consult with ALA about your program.

If in doubt about a course being accepted by a particular state, please check each state’s requirements. This link will take you to the AIA website, where you can easily check a state’s guidelines.
