The Division of the Architect (DSA) is pleased to announce that the new DSA Academy learning management system (LMS) is open for registration.

If you have previously taken a class with the DSA Academy, use your existing login to access your account in our new LMS. New users can refer to the updated guidebook located on the DSA Academy Resources webpage to learn how to create a new account. The webpage also contains information on course offerings and answers to frequently asked questions.

The latest delivery of the DSA Academy is through the Cornerstone LMS platform. The LMS is designed to provide learners with the flexibility to complete courses at times and locations that fit their personal schedule. Course offerings include live and on-demand webinars, which vary by topic. Project Inspector Recertification Examinations will continue to be offered with a delivery method using virtual proctoring during regular business hours by DSA staff. DSA will continue to grow the course library over time, including the addition of DSA’s Accessibility courses later this year. DSA will also expand the use of the LMS to offer new tools that will help clients manage their DSA certifications.

The prior DSA Academy (in the Blackboard LMS) remains available until Aug. 30, 2021. Learners with incomplete courses have until then to complete any unfinished courses. Credit will only be awarded for courses completed on or before that date. Partial progress will not be tracked nor transferred to the new DSA Academy. 

The CASp 101 course beginning on Aug. 6 will still be held in the Blackboard LMS and registrants should use the access information provided with their registration.

For DSA Academy and course questions please contact dsalmshelp@dgs.ca.gov.
