NCARB CEO, Michael Armstrong, has issued a status update regarding ARE access and candidate challenges. Per the update:
“NCARB administers the ARE on behalf of our 55 members, the architectural licensing boards in all 50 states and five U.S. territories. All of our members require passage of the ARE on the path to being issued a license to practice architecture. Our mission at NCARB is to assist our members in their public health and safety missions by ensuring licensure candidates are competent to practice. We also seek to facilitate licensure by assisting candidates as they develop that required competency.
As many of you know, due to the ongoing world health crisis, NCARB’s exam delivery partner, Prometric, had to close test centers to protect the health and safety of their staff and test takers. This has caused frustrating delays for candidates pursuing their architecture license, and NCARB is doing everything we can to get candidates back in the test centers safely.”
