Presentation on Becoming a Licensed Architect
Do you want to know how you can become a “real” Architect? Even while you are still studying?
There are many benefits to professional licensure that you should consider; your education with us is a first step into this direction but there is more! To learn more about this and how to get started, please view a recorded presentation, NCARB Licensing 2020 lecture by Sameena Sitabkhan – AXP and Licensing Coordinator.
Licensing is the culmination of your education and gives you the right to call yourself an architect and practice in the United States. Licensing consists of an educational requirement, experience working and a set of exams. It’s a long but a worthwhile process and it’s important to get started on it early! In California you can begin the process while you are in school and start gaining and reporting hours. Some of the other benefits of being licensed include:
- Calling yourself an “Architect”. You can’t do this without a license.
- A strong, professional credential
- Make your years of education count
- Run your own firm
- Promote diversity and make you voice a part of the small community of licensed architects in the United States
