The Nevada State Board of Architecture, Interior Design & Residential Design in partnership with the Nevada Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is offering an opportunity for Nevada architects, interior designers and residential designers to earn all of Nevada's 8 required health, safety and welfare (HSW) continuing education units (CEU's) in one day!
PLEASE NOTE: AIA Nevada and AIA Las Vegas are AIA CES Providers. The Provider Manual, updated in 2018, is the basic framework for evaluating new courses and lists specific criteria for Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) LU credits. Since the enforcement of the new standards, the course being offered May 9th in Reno, titled "Professional Ethics: A Duty to Live Up To", does not meet AIA’s definition for HSW credit but will qualify for LU credit. The Nevada State Board of Architects, Interior Designers and Residential Designers will grant HSW credit for the purpose of annual registration renewal for this course.
