Texas Architect Continuing Education Requirements

Texas State Continuing EducationRegistered Texas architects, interior designers, and landscape architects are required to complete 12 hours of Continuing Education every year.
  • CE Requirement:  12 CEPHs (Continuing Education Program Hours) annually. All 12 CEPHs must qualify as Health, Safety & Welfare (HSW) credits. At least 1 CEPH must be related to Barrier-free Design♿ and at least 1 CEPH must be related to Sustainable or Energy-efficient Design🍃
  • CE Reporting Cycle: Calendar year (January 1 to December 31).
  • Acceptable Coursework: The Texas Board of Architectural Examiners does not pre-approve courses or providers of continuing education. Use your professional judgment to determine if an activity meets the Board's criteria as summarized on the Board's website.
  • Reporting of Credits:  Providers CANNOT report continuing education credits earned to the Texas Board. Registrants must use the CEPH Log to accurately track and report courses. 
  • Tracking of Credits: Members are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities for at least 5 years from date of completion. 
  • Audit: A random sample of registrants will be audited. If audited (and only if audited), registrants will be asked to produce proof of compliance in the form of a CEPH log and corresponding certificate of continuing education or transcript showing courses completed.
  • Carry-over Credits: A Texas Architect is permitted to carry-over 12 CEPHs from the previous year in excess of the required credits for renewal.
