CONTINUING EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES
The Alaska Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects works to provide local opportunities for continuing education. Please use the calendar below to reference any CEU opportunities that might be coming up and please note we try to make any education opportunities free to our members when possible. Non-members are currently charged $25 per education event.
As shown on ASLA's ONLINE LEARNING page, ASLA Online Learning presentations provide information on new and evolving practices and techniques. These distance learning opportunities are also a convenient and affordable way to earn the professional development hours (PDH) needed to meet state licensure requirements. PDH are approved by the Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System™ (LA CES™) and can be earned after viewing a presentation by completing and passing a self study exam.
You may have received an email that directed you to this page to make a payment to receive your PDH certificate.
Please click on the "Buy Now" button and once notified that the transaction is complete, you should receive your PDH certificate. Note you will have to do individual transactions for each PDH you are looking to claim.
Reduced and waived cost are available to our members- if you are interested in membership follow the button to "Become a Member" below!
