Professional Development

Professional development hours (PDH) is the term that ASLA and the Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System™ (LA CES™) use to describe how much credit a course carries. One professional development hour requires at least 50 minutes of instruction. Additional time is measured in 15-minute increments. For example, each 60-minute education session equals 1.0 PDH.

More than 20 professoinal development opportunities will be offered throughout reVISION ASLA 2020. Following the program, an attendee may obtain a certificate providing proof of the PDH earned. Attendees must remain in virtual education sessions for the duration of the class to receive PDH.

The exact number of hours accepted for licensure purposes may vary by state, but ASLA has made every effort to structure educational opportunities that adhere to the most widely acknowledged guidelines of state registration boards requiring continuing education. Additionally, ASLA registers appropriate education programs with allied professional organizations, including the American Institute of Architects, the American Institute of Certified Planners, and the U.S. Green Building Council.
