Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island Board?

The way it works in Rhode Island, 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 Rhode Island architect license. We do not offer any classroom continuing education courses for Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island architect continuing education course will receive a certificate of completion. We can either email, mail, or fax the certificate to you.
