In addition to the 5 hours of coursework in accessibility, California architects must complete 5 hours of coursework in Zero Net Carbon Design (ZNCD). A California architect’s license will not be renewed in 2023 without the 5 hours of accessibility coursework and 5 hours of ZNCD coursework.
AIA California is developing and offering quality ZNCD coursework taught by instructors with expertise in ZNCD. Importantly, this coursework is offered for free to all architects in 2022 and 2023. That is correct. There is no cost to take the AIA CA-developed ZNCD coursework in 2022 and 2023.
