Starting January 1, 2015, all Montana licensed architects are required to complete 12 hours of HSW CE every calendar year. This CE requirement is based on a calendar year, running January 1 – December 31 each year. The CE requirement is established in Board rule ARM 24.114.2105.
Qualified education must be designed to increase or update the knowledge and competence of architects in technical and professional subjects related to the practice of architecture.
You must retain course completion certificates or other appropriate documentation, verifying course completion, for 6 years. The Board may conduct annual random audits of up to 50 % of licensees for compliance with the CE requirement.

Montana Architect Frequently Asked Questions
I’m an AIA member. Do you report my continuing education hours to the AIA?
Yes. We report all continuing education hours to the AIA after you complete your continuing education with us, if you are an AIA member.
Do you report my results to the Montana Board?
No, because the Montana board doesn’t require continuing education for architects.
Do you offer any architect continuing education training that is not online or correspondence?
We offer online and correspondence continuing education to renew your Montana architect license. We do not offer any classroom continuing education courses for Montana architects. We find that most students prefer to complete their continuing education online on their computer, smartphone, or tablet – or out of our course booklet.
Do you provide me with a certificate of completion when I finish your continuing education course?
Yes, all graduates of our Montana architect continuing education course will receive a certificate of completion. We can either email, mail, or fax the certificate to you.
What if I still have questions about completing my Montana architect continuing education courses?
No problem. Just call our continuing education specialists at (888)564-9098 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
