Thanks to our exclusive Monograph Series, you can easily earn the continuing education hours (CEH) you need to update your professional skills and maintain your license. By completing online quizzes, you can earn hours in Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) from the comfort of your own home.

Most of the 55 jurisdictions require architects to earn continuing education hours before each license renewal. Check your jurisdiction’s requirements.

NCARB Monographs and Mini-Monographs

Continue developing your professional skills by completing self-study courses on topics like fire safety, professional conduct, and building performance. Our Monograph Series offers architects an independent, cost-effective way to earn continuing education hours in Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) at their own convenience. Each monograph provides you the opportunity to earn 6 to 20 CEHs by reading the material and passing an online quiz.

Or, if you prefer to earn CEHs over time, we release new mini-monographs each month. Every mini-monograph includes a short article and related quiz, offering 1 to 2.5 CEHs in HSW.

Both monographs and mini-monographs are free for NCARB Certificate holders and licensure candidates with active NCARB Records.

How to Earn CEH:

  1. If you’re an NCARB Certificate holder, you’ll receive an email notification about the latest mini-monographs each month, or you can browse our full monograph collection. Note: Some monographs are only available for order by mail. Monographs and mini-monographs are also available to purchase for architects without an NCARB Certificate.
  2. After you download or receive your monograph, you’ll have two years to finish the quiz. Take the quiz by logging in to your My NCARB account, selecting “Monographs,” and choosing the desired monograph from the list. Note: You’ll need to “purchase” a mini-monograph by filling out your billing information before taking the quiz. However, if you have an NCARB Certificate or are a licensure candidate with an active Record, you will not be charged.
  3. You’ll see your results immediately and will have the option to either print your certificate of completion or retake the quiz. Your passing score is automatically reported
