OAA Continuing Education Course
The OAA’s Fundamentals of Running an Architectural Practice course offers the perfect overview of the business side of architecture. Originally titled Starting an Architecture Practice, this refocused program is ideal for members who are either starting their own practice or taking on an associate or partner role. It is also especially suitable for experienced architects looking for a refresh on the basics and the best practices.
Consisting of five key lessons, the entire course is delivered on three consecutive days. Taught by 11 experts in the field of architecture and finance, discussions range from industry requirements in Ontario to the exploration of business principles versus the operation elements of a professional practice. Topics include developing and modifying your strategic initiatives as an architect in the marketplace, professional requirements, client agreements, and how to manage your finances and your projects.
