Funkaar Institute is the most well known and established architecture licensing preparation program in the nation. Over the last 14-years, the program has educated over 12,000 attendees in over 55 locations. Extensive and ongoing research on the architecture exams allows us to have superior knowledge of the exam as a whole. We continually maintain a library of exam focused books which include NCARB reference books, building codes and exam preparation textbooks. Our teaching method has been requested by several AIA and ABA Chapters. The exam is currently offered in several parts or divisions. Candidates must pass all divisions of the exam along with other regulatory requirements to achieve licensure in the applicant's respective US state.

 

We provide professional training courses for:

  • ARE (Architect Registration Examination)

  • CSE (California supplemental examination)

 

Courses are offered on a quarterly term basis (Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer). Information based Instruction ensures maximum learning outcome with a set syllabus per course. Classes are typically held on college campuses throughout the US. Our instructors are licensed professionals and college level faculty members to provide the most accurate and organized classes.

Our classes have been held at:

  • College Campuses
