Columbus tours will count toward architects’ required learning

The Columbus Area Visitors Center has already been offering popular and informative tours of the architectural landmarks in the city. Now those tours have been certified as educational for architects.

The visitors center announced last week that it has been approved as a continuing education provider for the American Institute of Architects. That means five of the visitors center tours can be taken by architects and will count toward continuing education credits. Members of the Institute are required to complete hours of continuing education credits annually.

The five tours that were certified are the Architecture Highlights Bus Tour, the Iconic Columbus Tour and tours of the Miller House & Garden, Inn at Irwin Gardens and Zaharakos.
