About the ARE
Obtaining licensure is the single most important achievement of an architect’s career. To become a licensed architect, individuals must acquire practice experience under the supervision of a licensed architect through the Architectural Experience Program (AXP), and pass the Architect Registration Exam (ARE). The YAF helps its members and colleagues meet these requirements by offering educational and professional support.
Check out the AIA events calendar for posted ARE review dates.
While these sessions are geared toward exam candidates, participants are not required to currently be testing to participate in these sessions, the information presented is invaluable to anyone looking to expand their knowledge of the profession.
