Continuing Education Credits

Continuing Education Credits

Many of the sessions at CNU 21 will offer continuing education credits for architects via the American Institute of Architects (AIA); planners via the American Planner Association (APA), AICP-only; and landscape architects via the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA)

The AIA, APA, and ASLA determine the eligibility of our Congress program for credits and require that sessions be finalized before we can apply for credit for them. The PDF of available credits can be download HERE.

AIA Continuing Education Units

CNU is registered with the American Institute of Architects' Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) to provide learning units at a ratio of one credit per hour of instruction. Most sessions receive AIA credits, some qualifying for Health, Safety & Welfare credits to architects.

To claim their credits, attendees are required to sign their name and enter their AIA number at each session they attended to prove their attendance. All the forms are sent to the AIA within 10 days of the Congress. Attendees should see the sessions they attended credited on their account within 2-3 weeks.

If you have questions about AIA CES credits, please consult AIA's FAQ.

AIA Certificate of Completion

Architects who are not AIA members can receive a certificate of completion for the sessions they attend which receive AIA credits to submit to their state of registration. The online request form will be available on this website after the Congress. A certificate will be mailed to you a few weeks after the end of the Congress. Attendance at the session is required. We unfortunately cannot send you a certificate if you did not sign the relevant session attendance list.

AICP Certification Maintenance (CM) credits

CNU is an official certified AICP CM provider. The list of sessions and the number of credit associated with each session will be posted on the CNU 21 schedule as soon the APA approves them.

To claim your credits, self-report your credits on the APA website just as you usually do.

ASLA Continuing Education Credits

Again this year, most landscape architects will be able to acquire CEC at the Congress. You will need to self-report your attendance to your state. Most states accept the self-reporting system however a few (such as Florida, New York, and Pennsylvania) might not. Most states will require a certificate of attendance listing the sessions attended and the number of credits attributed.
