What’s the ARE? The Architect Registration Examination® (ARE) is a series of seven (7) exams that assess candidates for their knowledge, skills, and ability to provide the various services required in the practice of architecture.

ARE 2017

AIA Colorado sent out a survey at the end of November to gauge interest in a modified version of AIA Colorado’s ARE ASAP program for 2017 that relies heavily on the Black Spectacles program and study materials; and, unfortunately, we did not garner enough interest in the Black Spectacles discounted chapter pricing (we needed at least ten commitments).

However, there is still the opportunity for us to launch this portion of the program later in the year. We will continue to gauge interest quarterly (we plan on checking again in April, July, and October), and may be able to take advantage of the discounted pricing at that time if we can reach a minimum of ten users. Please keep an eye out for more information.

In the meantime, we are here to help our members with the licensure process in any way we can. In the absence of a formal ARE ASAP program in 2017, we will be extending the use of our ASAP library (an expanded version of our member ARE library) for all members. This library includes study guides, question & answer books, flashcards, and other materials. Please take a look at the library and checkout procedures to find out more.

In addition to the library, members also have access to a series of recorded webinars (one for each section of the 4.0 test), and other online study materials. Our office is also available for self-organized and directed study groups.

For a link to access these materials or if you’re interested in organizing a study group, please contact Sarah Gott at or 303.228.3912.

Each year, The American Institute of Architects Colorado Chapter proclaims April as Colorado Architecture Month in celebration of Colorado architecture and design.

There are events and discussions throughout the state intended to highlight the importance of architecture in our everyday lives. Architecture impacts how we live, work and play! Learn why Design Matters.

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter with #CoArchMo17.

Additionally, to help our members celebrate, join the conversation, and share your involvement, we have created a special Architecture Month Toolkit.

If you’re interested in utilizing this toolkit, please contact Jane Pahl to obtain a copy. Each of the items in the toolkit help us to celebrate the profession and our outstanding professionals.
