Getting Licensed – The Architectural Experience Program (AXP)

 Architectural Experience Program

Gain the professional experience required to become a licensed architect.

The Architectural Experience Program (AXP) provides a framework to guide you through gaining and recording your professional experience. Developed by NCARB, the program is required by most U.S. jurisdictions and is a key step on the path to earning a license.

Through the AXP, you’ll learn how to safely and competently handle the scenarios you’ll face as an architect. With broad experience areas that reflect the current phases of practice, the program prepares you for everything from site design to project management.

You’re on your way to becoming licensed. Now use NCARB’s tools to do the following:

  • Set up an NCARB Record to start reporting your experience
  • Learn about the six practice areas required to complete the AXP
  • Document your AXP hours
  • Get all the tools you need for your licensure supervisor or mentor
