At some point in your life, you may have heard someone say, “I don’t understand what you’re saying. Can you draw it out for me? I’m more of a visual learner.” This individual wasn’t trying to be difficult. Everyone learns and comprehends information differently. Whether or not we acknowledge it, we all associate ourselves with one of these three popular learning styles, as they are called: Visual, Auditory, Kinetic / Interactive.

With a new year also comes change. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has announced that AIA members will be required to complete 12 hours of health, safety, and welfare (HSW) education, an increase from the previous requirement of 8 HSW.

The new HSW requirement goes into effect in January 2012, and AIA members should fulfill their total 18 hours of continuing education within the year.

Utah Contractors Meet CE Deadline

Update: Everblue no longer offers the Utah CE program.

Wow, today was a busy day for contractors in Utah. Today is the first ever deadline for Utah's mandatory contractor continuing education (CE) requirement. This program mandates that licensed Utah contractors complete six hours of CE training, and it seems like many contractors waited until the last minute!

1.  I have some learning opportunities this month, participating in a webinar and attending a LEED ND conference here in Long Island, and I know that you don't get credit for any of those things unless you are already enrolled. I did not want to let these opportunities pass me by.

What Credential Maintenance Means for Existing LEED APs

Thu, 2009-09-24 01:37

So you passed the LEED AP exam prior to June 30th, 2009 – congratulations. Now, the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has upgraded the standard and is rolling out the LEED Credential Maintenance Program – should you opt in? Notice the key word: should. That’s right. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the GBCI are encouraging but not requiring all LEED APs to upgrade to the latest standard. From the USGBC perspective, they want to honor the early adopters of LEED and honor the agreement that was made at the time. Pretty neat.
