The AIA Fort Worth has joined forces with AIA California Council and their partner aecKnowledge to provide online continuing education for the design and construction industry. This allows professionals to pursue educational opportunities at their own pace and according to their own schedule. While state regulations require architects to complete CE credits in accessibility, there are other subjects all members of the industry are interested in as well.  Choose from a wide range of topics in design, sustainability, accessibility, marketing and business development, practice management, project delivery, and small firm practice– each one professionally developed and delivered by industry leaders.
