2011 AIA|LA ARE 4.0 Seminar Series

Each year, the AIA Los Angeles offers a seminar series to help candidates get ready for the licensing exam given by the California Architects Board. One seminar is dedicated to each of the sections of the ARE and there are 2 annual California Supplemental Exam (CSE) Prep Classes. Seminars are led by instructors who bring their years of knowledge and experience to an informative review session that helps candidates to become familiar with the basic material covered in each section of the exam.


Each ARE Seminar is $85 AIA members / $135 Non members
