AIA is approved by the American Institute of Architects (AIA Provider # J607) to provide online continuing education courses to architects. But there are other areas of study, useful to architectural interns working in architectural firms, preparing to take divisions of the ARE® (Architectural Registration Exam).

What follows is a listing of course modules available thus far, to use when preparing to test in one or more divisions of the ARE®. Registered professionals may also find individual modules to be of use, to improve their overall practice procedures or to acquire specific knowledge, useful in obtaining or executing commissions for specific projects.

The six test divisions of the Architectural Registration Exam are titled:

  • Practice Management (PcM)
  • Project Management (PjM)
  • Programming & Analysis (PA)
  • Project Planning & Design (PPD)
  • Project Development & Documentation (PDD)
  • Construction & Evaluation (CE)

Initials after each course module listed below indicate which division test(s) that course material applies. Each module only appears once on the list, which means some pertinent content for a particular exam may be in a different category, so if you're concentrating on one particular exam be sure to look at the categories at the end of the other module titles too. Clicking on the course module title will take you to a details page including the course module description and performance objectives.

In addition to the content each module features an online quiz to test comprehension. You will have the option to download your exam results at the end.
