Continuing Education

Landscape Architects (ASLA)

The Local Government Commission (LGC) has secured continuing education credits for Landscape Architects (LAs) for many of the sessions included in the conference program.  ASLA. Professional development hours (PDH) describes how much continuing education credit a session carries.  Professional development takes the form of a wide range of subjects that relate directly and indirectly to the practice of landscape architecture. In some jurisdictions, licensees must obtain continuing education that pertains to public health, safety and welfare (HSW).

These sessions are marked in the program with “PDH” followed by the number of qualifying credits indicated for each.  Sessions that qualify for both PDH and HSW are marked in the program with “PDH/HSW” followed by the number of credits indicated for each.

ASLA members may self-report their attendance at asla.org/ContinuingEducation.aspx. Most states accept self-reporting, with the exception of Florida, New York and Pennsylvania. ASLA members wishing to obtain credits must sign in at each accredited session and complete evaluation forms to verify attendance. All completed forms must be turned in at the registration desk before the end of the conference. A certificate of attendance will be provided by the LGC by February 28.
