FCICA, the Flooring Contractors Association, is very excited to be approved as an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Professional Provider. The AIA was created in 1857. Through education, government advocacy, community redevelopment, and public outreach activities, the AIA works toward a public environment that is responsive to the people it serves while representing the professional interests of American architects. The AIA recognizes that continuing education in architecture is crucial to advancing and improving the profession. Architects need continuing education to maintain competency, to prepare for the future, to fulfill the continuing education requirements for AIA membership, and frequently to renew state licensure.   

AIA CES Approved Providers are organizations that have been approved by AIA CES to offer continuing education in accordance with the guidelines outlined by AIA.  Approved Providers include architecture firms and stakeholder providers, which includes associations, government agencies, product manufacturers, and universities. FCICA is proud to have been added as a new Professional Provider.

“As FCICA has a great many subject matter experts in the flooring industry, it only makes sense that we become a Professional Provider for AIA”, states Executive Vice President Kimberly Oderkirk. “Having our webinars AIA CES approved allows our members to invite architects to their offices and provide them with a great Lunch & Learn session. We are excited to now offer this benefit to our membership.” Visit www.fcica.com for upcoming webinars that will now be AIA Approved.
