NCARB customers can now access free continuing education opportunities. Developed by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), the online Mini-Monograph Series can be used to satisfy state continuing education requirements, as well as the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) membership requirements.
Written by experts in the field, the self-study tools cover a variety of topics in Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW)—including fire safety, designing healthy environments, and managing ethical dilemmas. Twenty state boards require architects to complete 12 HSW CEHs every year, making December a great time to take advantage of NCARB’s Mini-Monograph Series.
Architects with an active NCARB Certificate, and aspiring architects who are reporting experience or taking the Architect Registration Examination (ARE), can download mini-monographs by logging into their NCARB account. Upon completion of an online quiz, each mini-monograph is worth between one to two HSW CEHs. Quiz results are shared instantly, along with a certificate of completion.
As NCARB continues to expand its library of continuing education opportunities, at least one new mini-monograph will be released every month. Customers can also access NCARB’s hardcopy monographs, which can be used to earn up to 20 HSW CEHs, for just $20 in shipping and handling. Architects without an active NCARB Certificate can purchase mini-monographs for $25 each.
