Architecture education and training is comprised of degrees, work experience, and certification. Many years of architecture education and training are required to become an architect. An architect designs and plans buildings and structures such as homes, hospitals, and factories.
If you are pursuing a career as an architect, you will need to successfully complete a five-year undergraduate program from an accredited architect training school. You can find a list of eligible programs and schools at the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) website (www.naab.org). You will receive education on architectural topics such as history, theory, structural principles, and planning. Computer-aided design courses may also be included.
Once you have earned your architecture degree, you are required to participate in the Intern Development Program (IDP) offered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB). As an intern you will assist licensed architects in research and design projects.
You must have three years of experience before you become eligible to take the Architect Registration Examination (ARE). This exam is required to become a licensed architect. The ARE is comprised of seven divisions, all of which must be completed within five years.
To maintain your license, you must take continuing education classes, which can be found at the NCARB website.
