Planar Offers AIA CE Courses with HSW Designation
Architects in most states must complete a minimum number of continuing education learning unit (LU) hours per year in order to renew their license. These educational sessions are provided by building product manufacturers like Planar. The architects in these states as well as members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) are required to take a minimum of 12 LU hours in approved Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) topics. The course content must directly support the HSW definition, it must include one or more specific HSW topics, and 75% of the content must be on HSW topics (see the AIA HSW guidelines).
Many continuing education courses do not comply with the HSW requirements. Therefore, only a small percentage of AIA CE courses carry the HSW designation. This results in very high demand for the HSW courses. Planar currently offers two AIA CE courses, both of which carry the HSW designation.
