As reported in our February 2012 issue, the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (LARE) is undergoing some major structural changes. The exam is being reorganized from five sections to four sections, and the graphic sections that required you to hand draft the answers will soon be administered by computer. (See a graphic that explains those changes here.)
This June is the final time the grading and site design sections (C and E) will be offered in their current format. The deadline to register for these sections with the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) is this Friday, May 4. If you’ve passed Section D of the exam, and haven’t passed sections C or E, you’ll want to make sure you are signed up to take both those sections in June or you’ll risk losing the credit you gained for section D. There’s more information on CLARB’s web site.
