AIA Colorado wants to help YOU pass the ARE through providing a significant benefits package that includes programs, seminars, webinars, resources and more.
What is the challenge?
Challenge yourself to TAKE and PASS all seven (7) ARE exams in the 2016 calendar year. Pretty lofty goal, right? Truth is, it CAN be done and we want to help get you there. If accomplished, your exams will be over, you’ll be licensed AND you’ll be eligible for an amazing prize!
The ARE ASAP Challenge will run you a cool $310. The Challenge is only slightly more expensive than taking our entire ARE seminar series (all of which are included in the package), and includes a host of additional benefits (see below) designed to assist you in passing your exams.
The goal is to get YOU licensed. By taking this challenge, you will develop a network of peers who offer academic support and encouragement along the way.
What Does It Include?

- Registration is open until capacity is reached.
- The cost of the program is $310, regardless of how many programs you participate in.

ARE Seminars are once-monthly review sessions led by expert volunteer instructors designed to give examinees the knowledge needed to pass their exams.
- Each exam section is covered twice during the calendar year.
- If an examinee fails a section, the six-month waiting period to retest will fall in line with the second offering of the section seminar.
- We offer a Test Taking Strategies seminar at the beginning of each six-month cycle that includes tactics, useful materials, NCARB-published resources, and a discussion about the graphic software all examinees are required to use.
AIA Colorado members will have access to pre-recorded Webinars via AIA’s Online Library site.
