New York Architects

Every New York State licensed and registered architect must take continuing education in appropriate subject areas offered by approved sponsors. You are required to complete 36 hours of continuing education during each three-year registration period.

A maximum of 18 of the 36 hours of continuing education may be in educational activities for architects.

PDH Academy hours are considered “educational activities for architects.”

Sponsors recognized by the AIA CE Program are considered approved sponsors in New York. PDH Academy is an AIA approved provider.

New York 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 New York Board?

The way it works in New York, you will renew your license and check the box letting them know you completed your mandatory architect continuing education. If the board audits you, they will ask you to provide your certificates of completion for your architect continuing education courses.

Do you offer any architect continuing education training that is not online or correspondence?

We offer online and correspondence continuing education to renew your New York architect license. We do not offer any classroom continuing education courses for New York 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 New York 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 New York architect continuing education courses?

No problem. Just call our continuing education specialists at (888)564-9098 or email us at .
