The ARE Pact program, presented by AIASF's Architectural Licensing Committee, offers the perfect incentive to get licensed: take all exams required by NCARB for licensing within 12 months and you will receive a full refund of your $1,000 enrollment deposit. Enrollment in the program includes a peer study group organized by AIASF, a team leader and coach assigned to your group, free admission to class lectures for all six ARE divisions with dinner provided, study materials for the group and more. You can view the 2019 class schedule here.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to schedule exams, you must be confirmed eligible for testing by NCARB and the California Architects Board (or the jurisdiction where you intend to practice). Confirmation of eligibility may take 6-8 weeks, so it is crucial that you obtain your eligibility to test in advance to keep pace with the ARE Pact program timeline.
