Partner with AIA Tampa Bay to Provide a Class
If you have an approved class which offers HSW credit and would like to work with the chapter to provide the program to our members, please email a copy of the program description to Dawn@aiatampabay.com.
Eat and Educate
We hold lunch time programs at least once-a-month at The Center for Architecture and Design, and occasionally at a provider’s own venue. Eat & Educates are scheduled several months in advance. The program provider is responsible for arranging and paying for the lunch; filing names for credit in a timely manner; providing certificates to all attendees. AIA Staff will be responsible for promoting the program, taking registration and setting up the venue. Our location can accommodate up to 30 attendees and we typically attract 20 – 25 attendees depending on the program.
Priority is given to our allied members in scheduling these classes. Click here to learn about all of the benefits of allied membership and to join today!
Helpful Information on CE Transcripts and Reporting
Transcripts are Maintained by AIA National. We recommend that you check your transcript regularly to make sure credits earned are recorded.
To Check your transcript go to the AIA national site and login. Your username is typically your email and your password may be your last name. If you are having trouble logging in, email chapter staff to set up a temporary password for you.
If your transcript is wrong the FAQ page will explain the procedure to follow. You can also find information here on Self Reporting continuing education credits.
Architectural Experience Program (formerly IDP) & AIA Continuing Education
Interns may earn supplemental experience hours by completing approved AIA Continuing Education programs. One AIA CEU/LU is equal to one experience hour. Credits must be documented on your transcript which are available for free upon request.
