2012 AIA|LA ARE 4.0 Seminar Series

Each year, the AIA Los Angeles offers a series of seminars to help candidates prep for the Architect Registration Examination (ARE). One seminar is dedicated to each section of the ARE and there is also an annual California Supplemental Exam (CSE) prep class. 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. Please note that these AIA|LA ARE Seminars are not exhaustive and should be used as a supplement to a candidate's overall study strategy.
