Historic Preservation – ARE Supplemental Course - Canceled
March 15
6:30-8:00p


This ARE Supplemental Course has been canceled.

The Young Architects Forum has scheduled the 2017 Architect Registration Exam (ARE) Prep Courses.

With the launch of ARE 5.0, some candidates plan to complete their testing under ARE 4.0 while others plan to combine ARE 4.0 with ARE 5.0 in order to only take five tests. While the format and division organization of ARE 5.0 is quite different, much of the content overlaps with 4.0. Our 2017 ARE Prep Series will provide inclusive learning and applicable resources for ARE candidates regardless of the test version they intend to complete.

The graphic vignette content specific to 4.0 is now condensed into a single-day session. Practice Management content new to 5.0 is presented in a separate course. We also added a general study session to provide an open coaching and review forum for those looking for additional personal guidance. And once again, we will offer supplemental courses to provide an overview of topics found throughout all exams.

All ARE sessions offer continuing education credit and can be taken by members as review sessions.


Historic Preservation:

This session provides an overview of preservation policies, practices and legislation.

They will examine surveying, assessing and documenting techniques. They will also consider restoration techniques, including historic materials, traditional construction methods, sustainable design adaptive reuse, sympathetic additions, infill structures and the introduction of new mechanical systems.
