Location: CALVIN L. RAMPTON SALT PALACE CONVENTION CENTER – Salt Lake City, Utah
Recognizing design excellence among emerging professionals in Colorado.

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.
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 email@example.com or 303.228.3912.
ARE study materials, including study guides, practice exams and flashcards, are available for free check-out by AIA Colorado members only. Review the lending procedures and remit the registration form by mail, in-person, fax or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most local section libraries lend materials from the following publishers and authors:
- Brightwood Architecture Education (formerly Kaplan)
ARE study resources are also available for download. These study resources were assembled by volunteer ARE seminar instructors and are only available to AIA members. Please email your professor to access study resources for the following ARE sections:
