Kentucky Board of Architects RequirementsThe Commonwealth of Kentucky requires 12 professional development unit (PDU) hours each renewal period, which runs from July 1 to June 30. Eight of the 12 PDU hours must relate to health, safety, and/or welfare (HSW) topics. The Board DOES NOT pre-approve education programs for credit. It is the responsibility of the architect to make appropriate judgments about whether the quality and applicability of the programs submitted to the Board for credit meet the state requirements. Complete information about the Kentucky requirement for license renewal is available at the KY Board of Architects Website.
