South Dakota Continuing Education Requirements

South Dakota Blue Book (Administrative Rule 20:38:35:01) Continuing Education Requirements 


  • Individual licensees are expected to maintain their professional competency by participating in continuing education activities throughout their practicing career.
     
  • Generally, licensees are expected to earn a minimum of 30 professional development hours (PDH) during each two years of licensure and demonstrate their compliance with this minimum requirement by submitting a "PDH log" showing their completed continuing education activities at the time of renewing their individual license.
     
  • A maximum of 10 PDH can be earned in professional management subjects, with the balance being earned in technical subjects (20 PDH) relating to their architectural practice.
     
  • As an alternative, individual licensees may earn a minimum of 12 continuing education hours (CEH) in health, safety, and welfare (HSW) subjects acquired in structured educational activities per calendar year.

South Dakota Blue Book (Administrative Rule 20:38:35:07) Continuing Education Record Maintenance and Verification


  • A licensee shall maintain records to support professional development credits claimed.
     
  • Records sufficient for audit purposes must be maintained for three years after the date of renewal.
     
  • The records shall include the PDH credits earned prior to the date of renewal and, in the case of carryover PDH credit, shall include the years when the carryover PDH was earned.
