Can I self-report an HSW credit?
No. 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.
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.
