AAA Members can self-report their learning activities online by using the AAA's Online Reporting tool
Member transcripts will be updated automatically for all AAA events and for AAA Registered Course Provider events where the confirmation of attendance has been provided to the AAA. Please allow approximately two weeks for your transcript to be updated online.
If you have any questions regarding the Online Reporting tool
or the Professional Development Program, please contact [email protected]
The Professional Development (PD) Program is in place to ensure AAA members who have exclusive statutory rights of practice, are able to respond to professional obligations to clients, the public and the profession. This program ensures that members remain current with the technologies, business practices and methods of their profession. The Architects Act
and General Regulation
requires members of the AAA to participate in and comply with the PD Program.
This mandatory program applies to all Registered Architects (RAs), Licensed Interior Designers (LIDs), Restricted Practitioners (RPs), and all Intern Architects (IAs) and Intern Interior Designers (IIDs) who have completed seven years or more in the applicable Internship Program.
