Codes & Regs

Just as construction practices have evolved over time, so have the regulations that govern the design, construction, and occupation of the built environment. With few exceptions, these regulations do not become less stringent over time, and many elements that used to be considered best practices are now codified as minimally acceptable construction practices. Within our Codes and Regs Track, you’ll hear about challenges and successes the responsible design professionals face.

Practice

With an important focus on preparing architects to successfully practice into the future, the Practice Track allows architects and industry professionals to pursue educational opportunities related to tips and tools for firms. Hear from industry experts and architectural professionals on how to set up yourself, your team, and/or your firm for progress.

Zero Net Carbon Design

Per the passing of AB1010 in 2021, 5 hours of Zero Net Carbon Design (ZNCD) is the newest education requirement for California architecture license renewal beginning with the 2023 Renewal Cycle. If you're wondering how you can obtain this coursework, look no further! AIA California has made it simple and easy for you to obtain your ZNCD education hours with the ZNCD Track! Join us as we offer all 5 hours of ZNCD coursework you need so you can be one step closer to your licensure renewal.
