2017 ARE Prep Series Begins January 11
Posted Friday, January 6

Our award-winning ARE Prep Series, organized by our Young Architects Forum, begins on January 11 with a complementary introductory session featuring NCARB staff. Our series runs through April, offering both review sessions focused on each section of the exam and supplemental courses on topics found throughout the exams.

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.

Most sessions take place at AECOM’s office in Arlington and via simulcast at AECOM’s Roanoke office.

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

Complete information and registration are available on our ARE site.
