What is and How do I Self-Report?

To ensure that you receive your LU credits as quickly and accurately as possible, you must submit a self-report form online.

­

You may submit online via CES Discovery – view the tutorial.

­

­

Click on “CES Discovery Sign In” on the left margin.

­

Click the blue icon button “Go to Sign In” at the center of the page.

­

Log-in using your aia.org primary email address and password.

­

Select the “Self-Reported Activities” tab.

­

Scroll to the bottom and click “Add New.” Fill in the form and click “Save.” Once submitted, each self-report will be reviewed by AIA within 5 business days. If approved, the status will appear as “Approved."

­

Can I self-report an HSW Credit?

As of December 2012, AIA Members can only self-report credits with an LU designation. HSW credits must be reported directly to AIA National by an approved continuing education provider. The state of Florida does not accept self-designed or self-reported documentation for Florida licensure renewal.­

­

Self-Designed Activity:

This type of learning activity is organized by the member specifically to meet his or her individual needs.­ A self-designed activity frequently involves more than one type of medium or method, such as research, reading, interviewing subject experts, listening to audiotapes, and/or viewing videos.­ To determine what qualifies for self-designed, ask yourself the following questions: (1) Is this a planned learning activity?­ (2) Is this activity intended to be educational and operational?­ (3) Are you acquiring new knowledge or are you sharing your knowledge with others?­ (4) How will you apply this new knowledge to your practice?­ This method is not acceptable for HSW credit by AIA.

­

Structured Self-Reported Program:

This is a structured activity offered by an organized, third party, non-CES provider.­ Documentation of attendance/participation will usually be required as a supplement when reporting this activity to meet a state licensure requirement.­ For members who self-report a structured activity, the AIA is not able to assist in acquiring any support documentation that may be required by a state licensing board MCE audit.­ For a reference chart showing AIA ­Continuing Education requirements vs. Florida Continuing Education requirement consult the table below or click here.
