San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
aecKnowledge, a leading provider of advanced online continuing education (CE) for architects, engineers and construction professionals, and The AIA California Council (AIACC) announce the renewal of their knowledge partnership. The partnership was formed in 2010 based on a shared mission to help design professionals advance their careers, enrich their firms and elevate their practices through knowledge sharing.
“The AIACC is pleased to have renewed this partnership,” stated Paul W. Welch, Jr., Hon. AIACC, Executive Vice President, AIACC. “Joining forces with aecKnowledge will continue to allow the AIACC to deliver relevant, useful, and important knowledge to our members.”
To date, AIACC and aecKnowledge have produced twenty-five online continuing education courses under this partnership, including a series on accessibility that addresses the California requirement for license renewal. The 2010/2011 series was viewed by more than 12,500 individuals including over 40% of California’s licensed architects, making it the most popular online venue for this content. The 2012/2013 series, which includes four courses totaling five hours, will be released in early August. A significant portion of course revenue goes to the AIACC and its 22 local components to fund other initiatives.
According to Michael Strogoff, FAIA, Founder & President, aecKnowledge, “Our renewed partnership with the AIACC is a testament to the strong demand for online knowledge sharing. We are thrilled to have such a strong partner and to know that we are elevating the practice of architecture throughout California.”
aecKnowledge's online courses are approved for continuing education units by AIA/CES and/or GBCI. The courses are also accepted by many states to fulfill mandatory CE requirements for ongoing licensure. Additional materials, including free course previews, written transcripts, course descriptions, learning objectives and presenter biographies are also available.
