AIASF’s ARE Pact program offers the perfect incentive to get licensed: take all exams required by NCARB for licensure within 12 months and you will receive a full refund of your $1,000 enrollment fee. Enrollment in the program includes a peer study group assigned by AIASF, a team leader and coach assigned to your group, free admission to monthly study sessions, and much more to assist you in your attempt to successfully pass all the required exams.

The kickoff meeting for the 2017 ARE Pact program will be held at AIASF on Monday, April 17. If you have registered as a Pact member or are interested in learning more about the program, please RSVP online here.
