The ARE has been adopted for use by all 54 U.S. Member Boards and the Canadian provincial and territorial architectural associations as aregistration examination required for architectural registration. No single examination can test for competency in all aspects of architecture, which is why the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) is not the only requirement to become a licensed architect. The ARE concentrates on those services that most affect the public health, safety, and welfare. The ARE has been developed with specific concern for its fidelity to the practice of architecture; that is, its content relates to the actual tasks an architect encounters in practice. This examination attempts to determine the candidate's qualifications not only to perform measurable tasks, but also to exercise the skills and judgment of a generalist working with numerous specialists. In short, the objective is to reflect the practice of architecture as an integrated whole. The ARE consists of seven divisions, as outlined above, that include multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank,and check-all-that-apply questions as well as graphic vignettes. Exam Cost per division $210 x 7 = $1470 plus Study material: $500 I appreciate you taking time to look at my “investmentin my future project”.
