Success Teams



We are currently accepting applications for 2019 (June kick-off). Keep scrolling for details.
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.

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 materials and/or strategies, exam experiences, trade study materials, etc. and occasionally attend ARE lectures or compete in friendly ARE trivia games together.

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

  • Professional Practice Track (PcM + PjM + CE) - June 5 through end of September
  • Design Practice Track (PPD + PDD + PA) - January through April 2020


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.
The current teams are seeing better pass rate than the national average!



For both tracks, the cost is $250 for AIA Dallas and Northeast Texas Members/ $350 for Non-Members.
Participants may also enroll in just one track at a time for $150/$220
