It is critical that we remain current with changes and developments in the profession in order to provide quality services and to ensure public protection. For this reason, LCA is committed to helping our professionals stay up-to-date and informed throughout their tenure with LCA.
We have developed an in-house lecture series in which we bring in visiting speakers to educate staff on new products, evolving trends, and other related fields of interest. Generally at lunchtime over food and drink, presenters provide staff valuable insight and education on a variety of topics, most of which are accredited by the AIA Continuing Education program.
LCA is also committed to sending staff to seminars outside of the office to increase their knowledge base.
LCA supports architectural interns and offers paid positions which are open to architectural students or recent architectural graduates. The goal of the LCA internship program is to provide experience and exposure to many facets of architectural practice.
The internship program is based on a tradition of mentorship. Interns assist design studio teams and gain experience with concept design, computer drafting, 3D modeling, construction documents, and presentations.
