Professional Licensure

    The Ohio Architects Board and the Ohio Landscape Architects Board are responsible for the regulation of the practices of architecture and landscape architecture in the State of Ohio. There are two boards, with one budget and one staff. The Ohio Architects Board was established in 1929 and the Ohio Board of Examiners of Landscape Architects was established in 1965.

    The regulation of the two professions includes: issuing and renewing the licenses of properly qualified individuals; investigating complaints against licensees; monitoring compliance with mandatory continuing education requirements; and educating licensees and the consumers of the services provided by the board's licensees on the laws and rules that govern the practice of architecture and landscape architecture in Ohio and the board's role to promote and protect the health of the citizens of Ohio through effective regulation of the professions.
