NCARB Announces Alternate Path to Licensure for Experienced Professionals

May 09, 2017

Designers with more than five years experience can now satisfy the Architectural Experience Program's requirements by completing an online portfolio of work. By Katharine Keane, residentialarchitect.com The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) announced on Thursday at the 2017 AIA Conference on Architecture in Orlando, Fla., that design professionals with more than five years experience can satisfy the Architectural Experience Program's (AXP) requirements by completing an online portfolio of work. "The AXP Portfolio ensures that the profession of architecture continues to move in a more inclusive direction, while still maintaining the rigor needed to protect the public’s health, safety, and welfare," said NCARB President Kristine Harding, AIA, in a press release. "We’re excited to open new doors for accomplished designers who want to continue to advance their careers." This alternate path—which calls for the documentation of work that is older than five years in an AXP Portolfio—was designed for professionals who put off licensure for personal or financial reasons. Work examples that satisfy key tasks outlined in the AXP must also be included. To qualify for the AXP Portolio option, professionals must have, according to the release, "a current supervisor who is an architect licensed in the U.S. or Canada, and willing to attest to their knowledge and experience [and] at least two years of experience from more than five years ago, including at least one year of experience earned while employed by a firm engaged in the lawful practice of architecture under the supervision of an architect licensed in the United States or Canada."
