Disabled Access Continuing Education Bills Signed by the Governor

From AIA California Council:

"SB 1608 was signed into law on Sunday, September 28, 2008, by Governor Schwarzenegger, which creates a continuing education requirement for California architects as a condition of licensure. The SB 1608 CE requirement is limited to disability access. There are many questions about the SB 1608 CE requirement therefore, we've created a document to help answer many of those questions, click here to download the FAQ document.

Over the next several months, the California Architects Board will decide if it needs to adopt regulations to further clarify the SB 1608 CE requirement in order to answer future questions created by this mandate. This process will continue well into 2009. Now that we’ve entered the arena of mandatory CE as a condition of licensure, (even though limited) now is the time for The AIACC Board to determine whether to sponsor legislation giving the California Architects Board the authority to create a comprehensive continuing education program in California. This vote will take place at the upcoming November Board meeting in San Diego."
