Changes are coming, and this article will soon be updated! In the meantime, please reach out to education@living-future.org for the latest information about LFA.

Q: Can I earn AIA LU|Elective and LU|HSW credits through Living Future coursework?

As a whole, the LFA Foundational Curriculum offers 2 AIA LU|Elective credits and 18 AIA LU|HSW credits. Most other courses in the online course catalog offer AIA credit as well. To verify a particular course's credit offerings, refer to the Outcomes section below the course description (or to the end of the Course Description itself, which may need to be expanded to view in full). Live events will have their CEUs displayed before and during the event.

Q: How do I report AIA credits earned through Living Future coursework?

Be sure to include your AIA member number when registering for live events (such as member webinars and the Living Future Conference) and on-demand courses (at education.living-future.org). If anything is missing from your AIA transcript, please let us know as soon as you notice.


Per AIA policy, ILFI reports LUs to AIA on behalf of learners within 10 business days of their education completion. 

  • For on-demand, online courses: LUs are reported for all learners who provided their AIA member number in their education account and met all requirements to earn a certificate of completion for the course. If you failed to provide your AIA member number, please email us as soon as possible. ILFI will make every effort to report your attendance to AIA at that point.
  • For live, online events (e.g. member webinars): LUs are reported for all learners who provided their AIA member number at registration and attended the entire session. If you failed to provide your AIA member number, please email us as soon as possible. ILFI will make every effort to report your attendance to AIA at that point.
  • For live, on-site events*: LUs are reported for all learners who provided their AIA member number at registration, checked into the session during attendance, and attended the entire session. If you failed to provide your AIA member number, please email us as soon as possible. If you email within 10 business days of completing the education, ILFI will make every effort to report your attendance to AIA at that point. If it has been more than 10 business days since the event, ILFI will provide a certificate of completion that you may use to report your attendance to AIA. 

*Please note that we send reminder emails about CEU reporting following the annual Living Future Conference, along with mentions in our monthly member newsletters. It may be worth taking a look at your inbox filters to ensure that emails from @living-future.org aren't landing in a spam folder, and that you're signed up for our primary newsletter (https://living-future.org/newsletter/) and are receiving the member newsletters each month. You can email membership@living-future.org and our team can make sure you're on the list with an active email address.
