SB 1608: Mandatory Continuing Education for Architects

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, AIA California Council created a document to help answer many of those questions, click here to download the FAQ document.

AIA East Bay will offer at least 20 hours of Continuing Education programming in 2009 that will meet these requirements. The programs will be part of the regular chapter programs--as forums, lectures, tours, vendor presentations, in-depth technical information, etc. These programs will be offered in multiple locations throughout the chapter region of Alameda, Contra Costa, Napa and Solano Counties. To be alerted to these programs, please sign up for our complimentary e-newsletter, Update, which is sent twice a month.

If you attend an AIA East Bay MCE program we will provide you documentation of attendance. If you attend another provider's program, and documentation is not provided, the CAB provides a form for you to complete. Click here for the PDF form.
