Continuing Education Credit Information

These live, interactive webinars are designed to qualify for continuing education credit for professional engineers and architects in most states, except for Florida architects. Please see each webinar listing for the number of available continuing education credits. Course participants need to be aware of any licensing restrictions on online learning to fulfill their continuing education requirements. The contents of the Proposal Writing webinar and the Technical Writing webinars are not considered HSW for architects. Architects need to be aware of continuing education licensing restrictions on non-HSW coursework.

HalfMoon Education Inc. is approved as a continuing education provider by the American Institute of Architects (No. J885). HalfMoon Education is an approved continuing education sponsor for engineers in Florida, Indiana (License No. CE21700059), Maryland, New Jersey (Approval No. 24GP00000700), New York (NYSED Sponsor No. 35), North Carolina, and North Dakota. HalfMoon Education is deemed an approved continuing education sponsor for New York architects. Other states do not preapprove educators or courses.

Participation and knowledge retention will be verified for these webinar events. Certificates of completion will be provided upon successful completion of the quiz at the end of each webinar, and earned LUs will be reported to the AIA/CES.
