How many contact hours can I earn by attending the seminar?
The exact number of contact hours for each discipline such as architecture, engineering, fire safety, and contracting, will be available once all sessions have been submitted and approved by the various approving agencies and organizations. Although not a guarantee for this year’s sessions, in the past, architecture has received approximately 12 CEHs, engineering approximately 9 CEHs, and fire safety and contractors approximately 4-6 CEHs each. Also, some sessions are suitable for submission to ASHE to meet their continuing educational requirements.
To which certifying organizations for continuing education does the seminar submit?
For continuing education requirements, the seminar submits sessions to the American Institute of Architecture (AIA), the Florida Board of Professional Engineers, the Florida Fire College, and the Florida Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB). AIA approval is also accepted by the Florida Board of Architecture and Interior Design for credit. The seminar does not submit for approval to other boards or organizations outside of Florida. However, the sessions and their content are available following the seminar in a .pdf format the attendee can use to submit to other boards or organizations for approval.
Are the continuing education credits I earned in the seminar posted to my record?
All seminar attendees will receive certificates regarding the sessions they attended. For Florida registered Architects and Engineers, all CEUs are self-reporting. Following the seminar, individual credits for AIA members, Florida fire safety inspectors, and Florida certified contractors, will be uploaded to the relevant organization for all sessions that were attended.
Are video or audio recordings available for the seminar sessions?
Following the seminar, all sessions that have PowerPoints and that have speaker permission, will be posted on the seminar website as .pdf files for download by seminar participants.
