AIA Continuing Education Programs  

The Architectural Precast Association is proud to support the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education System (CES). The APA currently has two AIA Continuing Education Programs available to Architects: the Building Your Vision Seminar Series, the lunch box PowerPoint Presentation which offers one to three learning units, and a Production Facility Tour which offers one learning unit. Take advantage of these great opportunities to share the benefits of using architectural precast concrete products while building professional relationships with your local design community. If you would like more information on providing an AIA CE Program with Architects in your area, please contact us.
If you conduct any of these programs, please complete the AIA/CES Program Completion (Provider Form B) and submit to APA within two weeks of the program to receive certificates. Please also complete the evaluation form in order to assess the program.
