The Architect Registration Examination (ARE) is developed by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB). The ARE is used by U.S. state and territorial registration boards as the registration examination for candidates for architectural registration. It is also accepted by select Canadian provincial and territorial architectural associations for registration. For an overview provided by NCARB, click here.
