AIA Offers Continuing Education Credits for Pro Bono Services

May 20, 2016 -- The American Institute of Architects (AIA), Public Architecture, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have partnered to connect building owners seeking ENERGY STAR certification with licensed professionals willing to provide pro bono verification services.

AIA is offering participating architects up to 8 Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) continuing education units (CEUs) – representing a major proportion of their annual requirement for continuing professional licensure! Engineers in licensure states with continuing education requirements may also be eligible to take advantage of CEU credits.

WHO: Licensed professionals can further use this opportunity to:

  • Build relationships and name recognition with nonprofit building owners and managers.
  • Receive national recognition through a listing on the ENERGY STAR Licensed Professional Directory.
  • Earn eligibility for ENERGY STAR SPP partnership for your company.
  • Help an organization of your choice by performing a visible public service.
  • Help reduce carbon emissions in buildings.
  • Build a marketable skill verifying ENERGY STAR certification applications.

HOW:

1. View a no-cost, on-demand ENERGY STAR recorded training provided by EPA about how to verify an application. Complete a short quiz.

2. Use these instructions to find a project and validate one or more ENERGY STAR certification applications on a pro bono basis.

3. Secure a letter from the building owner confirming the pro bono work.
