AIBC registered architects and architectural technologists are reminded that the next AIBC Mandatory Continuing Education System (CES) two-year reporting period deadline is June 30, 2018. CES Participants must earn and report a total of 36 Learning Units (LUs) for the July 1, 2016–June 30, 2018 period.
The requirement to comply with the CES is outlined in AIBC Bylaw 30.2. The primary objective of the CES bylaw is to require the professional development of all CES Participants.
The AIBC is committed to the success of CES Participants in completing their educational requirements, through provision of regular educational offerings; the AIBC Annual Conference, the Recognized Educational Provider Program and other learning activities such as the Fall 2017 Professional Development Series.
Visit the AIBC Calendar for opportunities to earn Learning Units.
