Will your courses count towards credit in New York State – Architects
New York State has very specific requirements for continuing education credit. They require 36 Continuing Education hours for every three-year registration period. 24 need to be HSW and at least HALF of the required credits (18) must be obtained in-person by completing what the
Board refers to as “courses of learning” and defines as activities in which the student has the opportunity for immediate interaction with an instructor/presenter, (e.g. a seminar, lecture, workshop). The remaining credits (a maximum of 18 CE hours) may be earned via distance learning by participating in what the Board refers to as “educational activities”, which include self-study programs with a quiz and passing score (e.g. on-demand webinars, home studies), teaching a course, or giving a technical presentation. ATS is an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Provider and we are recognized by the NYS Architecture.
All ATS live seminars and webinars allow interaction with the presenter, therefore they are accepted by the NYS for “In-Person” continuing education credit.
