Success Teams



Application for the 2022  program will close on June 14th. This program will kick off on June 28th.

AIA Dallas will provide some of the study material, and a robust study schedule. Mentors who have successfully taken and passed these exams will be guiding the team along the way. Participants (even non-members) will also be able to subscribe to ArchiPrep at a discounted rate while enrolled in the program and have free access to the ARE Lecture Series.


What is the Success Team program?

The ARE Success Teams Program is an accelerated study program designed to support ARE candidates through a structured and focused approach. During the program, we will provide the materials, mentorship, and camaraderie needed to pass the Architect Registration Examination (ARE). The program is comprised of recurring study sessions where all participants gather and go over study materials, study tips, exam experiences, and occasionally compete in friendly ARE Trivia games or attend ARE lectures.

The six divisions of ARE 5.0 are organized into two tracks:

  • Design Practice Track (PPD + PDD + PA)  (June-December 2022)
  • Professional Practice Track (PcM + PjM + CE) (CLOSED)


What is the goal of the ARE Success Teams Program?

Each participant in the program will commit to taking either one or both tracks of the program in approximately a 4-month period (for a single track) or an 8-month period (for both tracks); and aim to pass the ARE to be one step closer to becoming a licensed architect. Everyone in the program is expected to continue to offer support to their fellow teammates throughout their testing experience.


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 the Success Teams Program?

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.



Participants may enroll in one track at a time.
$150 for AIA Dallas and AIA Northeast Texas members | $220 for non-members


The second cycle in 2022 kicks off in late June:

Design Track (PA - PPD - PDD) - June 28, and subsequent Tuesdays for up to 17 weeks 
Pro-Practice Track (PcM - PjM - CE) - CLOSED
