Ohio State Seal Continuing EducationLicensed Ohio architects are required to complete 12 HSW (Health, Safety & Welfare) Continuing Education Hours per calendar year.

  • CE Requirement:  12 Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) per calendar year, all of which must qualify as Health, Safety & Welfare (HSW) credits and must be earned in a structured setting (e.g. seminar, internet or correspondence course).
  • Renewal Date:  December 31.
  • CE Reporting Cycle:  Annual - CEHs must be earned within the calendar year immediately preceding the renewal date (i.e. January 1, 2022 though December 31, 2022).
  • Acceptable Coursework:  The Ohio Architects Board does not pre-approve courses. Courses approved by the AIA under the HSW designation are generally accepted. Final discretion is up to the board.
  • Reporting of Credits:  Providers cannot report continuing education credits earned to the Ohio Architects Board. Licensees are responsible for tracking courses and maintaining supporting documentation in case of an audit. A Continuing Education Log and related back-up information should be made available to the Board at anytime upon request by the Board.
  • Tracking of Credits:  Licensees are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities for at least 6 years following the renewal period for which the continuing education was taken. 
  • Audit:  All architects licensed in Ohio are subject to audit by the Board and upon written request will need to provide documentation to support the CEHs claimed at renewal.
  • Carry-over credits: Not allowed
