How do I register for an upcoming ICAA continuing education course?

To register for a continuing education course hosted by the ICAA National Office, you can use the registration link noted on the program page, email [email protected], or call 212-730-9646 x112. Please also note the ICAA National Office Registration and Cancellation Policy, which you may access by clicking here. ICAA Chapters manage course registration for their own events.

Does the ICAA offer the same continuing education courses seasonally?

The ICAA National Office does not offer recurring continuing education classes on a regular basis, but aims to offer future sessions of classes whose demand exceeded capacity. Core classes are generally offered annually or semi-annually. The frequency of ICAA Chapter courses varies by region.

Which courses count towards the ICAA Certificate in Classical Architecture?

You can find a list of the ICAA's core curriculum subject areas along with more details about the ICAA Certificate in Classical Architecture program by clicking here. For questions about specific courses that aren’t on this list, please contact [email protected]

Do I need to have prior experience to keep up in a studio-based class?

Most ICAA continuing education courses are suited to all artistic and academic backgrounds. Seasoned artists and novices alike have enjoyed and improved on their skills in ICAA classes. If a class has any pre-requisites or is recommended for a certain experience level, this will appear on the class listing on the ICAA website. While Chapter courses may be listed on classicist.org, you should check the Chapter website, or contact the Chapter directly, for the most up-to-date details including dates, times, pricing, and pre-requisites.

What do I have to do to get AIA/CEU credit for a continuing education course?

In order to receive AIA credit, you will need to sign an attendance sheet that is circulated at the beginning of each class. You’ll provide your AIA number, if applicable, email address, and full name as it will appear on your certificate of completion, should you indicate that you would like to receive one. Please be aware that if the course takes place over multiple days, you will need to sign in on every day of the program. If you neglect to provide any of this information, or if you have questions regarding your credits, please contact [email protected] For webinars hosted via Zoom, please be sure to join the Zoom webinar using your email address and full name so that we may verify your attendance at the program. You may also be asked to fill out a survey prior to the course to confirm your AIA number and whether you would like to receive a Certificate of Completion. For questions related to a regional Chapter's continuing education course, please contact that Chapter directly.

What is the difference between AIA Elective and HSW credits?

Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) in architecture includes topics that relate to the structural integrity and soundness of a building or a building site. Course content must focus on these topics in order to provide HSW credits. For more information on ICAA classes that have been approved by the AIA for HSW credit, please contact [email protected]

I am no longer able to attend a course for which I have registered. Am I able to receive a refund of my registration payment for the course?

In many cases, you will be able to receive a full or partial refund of your course registration fee. For courses in the New York Region, you may refer to the ICAA's Continuing Education cancellation and refund policy by clicking here.
