Architect Registration Examination - Courses and Study Materials

ARE Review Classes

AIA Chicago offers an annual ARE review course for interns preparing to take the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE). As of August 2018, we have not scheduled our next course which will likely take place in early 2019.

AIA Chicago has printed study materials from PPi and Brightwood which can be used in the chapter office or checked out for several weeks. 

On October 3, 2018, AIA Chicago will host its annual program on on licensure with NCARB staff who will cover the Architectural Experience Program™ (AXP), Architect Registration Examination® (ARE), recent changes to NCARB programs, and the value of the NCARB Certificate​. Check the AIA Chicago calendar for details and registration.
