Structural Engineering Continuing Education Course Receives AIA Approval

Jun 09, 2011

Press Release: June 9, 2011 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (June 9, 2011) — Originally published in the May 2011 issue of Structural Engineering & Design, the continuing education course “BIM in a Cloud II: BIM and Cloud Computing for Structural Engineering” recently received AIA/CES approval. The course is worth 1 learning unit (LU). To receive credit for this course, participants must study the course material, complete the quiz online, and attain a comprehension level of at least 80 percent. By completing continuing education courses, architects and engineers can maintain competency and fulfill their continuing education requirements for AIA membership or state licensure. Architectural boards in 42 states and the District of Columbia, 11 Canadian provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education for state license renewal, according to the American Institute of Architects (AIA). ZweigWhite, the publisher of Structural Engineer magazine (formerly Structural Engineering & Design), is an approved AIA/CES course provider. Currently, “BIM in a Cloud II: BIM and Cloud Computing for Structural Engineering,” sponsored by Bentley Systems, Incorporated, is the only AIA-approved course offered from ZweigWhite. As a benefit of AIA membership, the course “BIM in a Cloud II: BIM and Cloud Computing for Structural Engineering” is automatically tracked and posted to AIA members’ transcripts. Many state licensing boards accept the AIA/CES transcript as documentation of continuing education coursework, which means that the AIA’s central record-keeping system may be the only documentation AIA members need to satisfy their state licensing requirements, the AIA notes. Additionally, ZweigWhite will report the credits within two weeks for all architects or engineers who take the course.
