What is the ARE 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, etc. and occasionally compete in friendly ARE trivia games.

The six divisions of ARE 5.0 are organized into four blocks, with a break scheduled in between each, tentatively as follow:
Block 1: PcM + PjM Jan 15 - Mar 31
Block 2: CE April 8 - May 23
Block 3: PA Jun 1 - July 16
Block 4: PPD + PDD Aug 5 - Nov 15

What is the goal of the ARE Success Team?

Each participant in the program will commit to taking all six divisions of ARE 5.0 in an 11-month period; and will pass the ARE and become a licensed architect by the end of the year. Everyone in the program is expected to continue to offer support to fellow members until every member of the group passes all six of his or her divisions.


Who can participate in the ARE Success Team?

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 members will enjoy a discounted rate to enroll in the program.
