School may be out for the summer, but come fall, the best place to go back to the classroom is the National Preservation Conference in Indianapolis. Architects, planners, landscape architects, and green builder can earn CEU credits for education sessions and tours. From tax credits to environmental sustainability and from industrial rehabilitation to historic building assessments, you will find plenty of sessions and tours that will connect the dots between preservation and your specific area of expertise.
Wendy Hillis, AIA, executive director of Preservation Durham in North Carolina, received CEU credits at the National Preservation Conference in Spokane last year. She says, “As a preservation professional and licensed architect, it's nice to be able to get continuing education credits for a conference that is personally interesting and applicable to my current job."
Participating institutions include the American Planning Association (APA), Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), American Institute of Architecture (AIA), and Landscape Architects Continuing Education System (LACES). Approved 90-minute education sessions will earn 1.5 credits and approved tours will earn 1 unit for each instructional hour (minus breaks and meals).
