Great info
I have a question, is "AIA Provider Number" the number should entering at my account "AIA#"?
Thanks you

LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council

Samaah, I do not have an AIA credential to properly guide you but, your assumption that the AIA Provider Number should be entered in your account AIA number doesn't seem correct. I would think your AIA number is specific to your account and not the course. Similar to how your GBCI number would not correlate to the GBCI number provided on a course. I wish I could log in to AIA to guide you further. You may want to reach out to AIA at cessupport@aia.org.

Worst quiz ever. I watched the video twice and read through the slides several times to review the information. I don't think it is that difficult to grasp the new concepts, but the quiz wording is difficult to differentiate between course objectives and required answers.
