The AIACC-sponsored SB 1132 (Senator Galgiani) passed the State Senate yesterday on a 39-0 vote.

SB 1132 allows those who are working hard to become licensed architects to use the job title “architect-in-training.”  SB 1132 is needed to allow this title as current law prohibits any usage of the “A” word in the design and construction fields unless that person is a licensed architect.

This bill, if ultimately successful, will allow architectural firms in California to use an acceptable and appropriate job title for their employees who are path to licensure.

SB 1132 next will be heard in the State Assembly before it can be sent to the Governor.
