Continuing Education Credit Information

These live, interactive webinars are designed to qualify for engineer and architect continuing education credit in most states. Course participants need to be aware of any state continuing education restrictions/limitations on online learning and acceptance of non-HSW coursework for architects for some of the webinars. See each webinar listing for offered credits.

HalfMoon Education is registered with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System (Provider J885) and the Landscape Architect Continuing Education System. Visit for complete AIA/CES information under each course listing. Only full attendance is reportable to the AIA/CES and LA/CES.

HalfMoon Education is an approved continuing education sponsor for engineers in Florida, Indiana (License No. CE21700059), Maryland, New Jersey (Approval No. 24GP00000700), North Carolina, and North Dakota. HalfMoon Education is deemed a New York-approved continuing education provider for engineers, architects, and landscape architects via its affiliation with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System (Regulations of the Commissioner §68.14(i)(2), §69.6(i)(2), and 79-1.5(i)(2)).

The Association of State Floodplain Managers has approved the Aerial Mapping Technologies and Procedures webinars. The available CECs are indicated for each webinar offering.

Participation and knowledge retention will be verified for these webinar events. Certificates of completion will be provided upon successful completion of the quiz following the end of each webinar, and earned LUs (AIA/CES) and PDHs (LA/CES) will be reported by HalfMoon Education Inc.
