AIA East Bay has recently recorded a panel discussion of young architects on how they got through the licensure process. The discussion is entitled: ARE & IDP: Weathering the Storm.
The video addresses such questions as:
Which test should I take first?
What study materials do you recommend?
Where can I get help paying for the ARE?
How much time did you spend studying for each test?
What do you do if you fail (and things to be careful of so you don’t fail).
Additional study tips and resources.
How long should it take for NCARB to get back to you? [in regards to submissions you make to them]
How do you determine the experience needed to begin testing?
What’s the deal with CIDP?
How can you earn IDP units if you are currently unemployed?
How did you get all the different types of experience [required by IDP]?
Why should you get a license?
The discussion is broken into four videos of less than 10 minutes each. To view, click here:
