In 2012, the Florida Administrative Code changed from 20 to 24 hours of continuing education per biennium, meaning 22 hours of health, safety and welfare-approved courses and two hours of the advanced Florida Building Code. For more inforamtion, see the DBPR Architecture Continuing Education Handbook.
When an architect renews their license, they will attest to completing 24 continuing education hours from Jan. 1, 2023, through Dec. 31, 2024.
The Board of Architecture and Interior Design (BOAID) no longer accepts optional self-directed study courses delivered by non-AIA providers.­
