Architectural Experience Program (AXP)
Completion of the Architectural Experience Program (AXP), formerly known as the Intern Development Program (IDP), administered and verified by NCARB (National Council of Architectural Registration Boards) or its equivalent as determined by NCARB is required to meet the experience for initial licensure. AXP is a comprehensive training program created to ensure that architectural interns gain the knowledge and skills required for the independent practice of architecture. More information on the program can be found on NCARB's website.
ARE applicants must be enrolled in AXP prior to qualifying to sit for the exam.
