Success Teams



We are currently accepting applications for 2019 (June kick-off). 
AIA Dallas will provide study material, and study schedule. A mentor who has successfully taken and passed these exams will be guiding the team along the way.

What is the Success Team program?

It's an accelerated study program designed to support ARE candidates through a structured and focused approach, providing the materials, mentorship, and camaraderie needed to pass the Architect Registration Examination (ARE). The program will feature recurring meetings with mentors, where all participants gather and go over study strategies, exam experiences, trade study materials, and occasionally compete in friendly ARE trivia games. The six divisions of ARE 5.0 are organized into five blocks, with one week of break in between, tentatively as follow:

Block 1: PcM + PjM        Jun 5 – Aug 13         
Block 2: PA                     Aug 21 – Oct 1 
Block 3: PPD                  Oct 9 – Dec 4                   
Block 4: PDD                  Dec 11 – Feb 11
Block 5: CE                    Feb 19 – Mar 31


Who Can Participate?

Associates with an active NCARB record who are eligible to test are welcome. Participants are required to show proof of ARE Eligibility from NCARB. AIA Dallas and Northeast Texas members will have priority to enroll.

Why should you Participate in a Success Team?

Many ARE candidates have difficulties passing the exams. This program offers an opportunity for candidates to find support, share successes (and failures), and get questions answered. The Success Team program is structured to encourage ARE candidates so they can stay on track & not delay testing/studying. The program provides access to study materials and mentors.


The program will cost $250 AIA Dallas and Northeast Texas Members/ $350 Non-Members. Non-refundable.
New this year:

  • Participants who managed to take all six exams as planned, and passed at least five by the end of the program will receive a full refund to celebrate their SUCCESS!
  • Partial enrollment is available for participants that completed the entire program once, but need to retake exams the following year.
