Architectural Institute of British Columbia Recognized Educational Provider
The AIBC’s Continuing Education System (CES) was introduced in 2001 in response to the profession’s recognition of its own needs and the public’s increasing expectation that architects remain current with contemporary technology, business practices, methods and materials.
All architects and architectural technologists are required to earn 36 Learning Units every two years, consisting of “Core” and “Non-core” learning units as designated by the AIBC. The current CES reporting period covers July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2020.
