The AIA Los Angeles has joined forces with AIA California and their partner aecKnowledge to provide online continuing education for design professionals. 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 (including the MDC keynote presentations), sustainability, accessibility, marketing and business development, practice management, project delivery, and small firm practice – each one professionally developed and delivered by industry leaders. Visit now to take advantage of the member discount.

Members and non-members can purchase this 4-part series here.

2021 Course

This year’s series includes an AIA Whitney M. Young Jr. Award recipient’s guide to designing accessibility hotels and resorts, an advocate for about disability rights discussing how long-held social misconceptions and assumptions about disability inform design, a case study of how the widely-acclaimed historical renovation of the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice resulted in a more inclusive design, the Commissioner for the City of Chicago’s Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities discussing how Chicago is becoming one of the most accessible and inclusive cities in the nation, and a provocative panel discussion that sheds light on why the disability community often states “Nothing About Us Without Us.”
