CES: Continuing Education
AIA Pasadena & Foothill is an "AIA CES Registered Provider" of continuing education programs for members. This means that AIA Pasadena & Foothill is one of more than 2500 educational providers within the AIA/CES systems made up of AIA Chapters, affiliate organizations, manufacturers, universities, other non-profit organizations and government agencies. Our goal is to provide the best available continuing education opportunities to our membership and related industry professionals.
Look for the AIA/CES provider logo to denote AIA CES programs
When you see the AIA/CES logo advertised in conjunction with our educational seminars, workshops, and conferences you'll know the specific program has been registered through the AIA CES system. If a program is registered, this means that all members who register and attend will have their time recorded for credit by the provider (eg. AIA Pasadena & Foothill). AIA/CES records are kept on file with the University of Oklahoma where transcripts are maintained for all AIA members.
For non-AIA members, AIA Pasadena & Foothill will provide a certificate of completion upon request for all AIA/CES programs offered by the Chapter.
Remember, all active AIA members must successfully complete 18 learning unit (LU) hours each year, with at least 8 LU hours relating to health, safety and welfare (HSW).

Self-Report those programs you attend that are not registered with AIA/CES
If a program is not offered by AIA Pasadena & Foothill or another AIA/CES registered provider, AIA members have the option of self-reporting independent activities or research. The intent of this activity must be educational in nature and related to new knowledge in reference to their practice of architecture. The AIA national component offers an excellent Frequently Asked Questions section where members can learn more about Self-Reported Activities and other AIA/CES requirements.
