Why do we need to register with NCARB to take the ARE's? I just want to take the test without paying an organization to keep my time - I have been able to track my own progress without anyone help.
I have tried getting NCARB General and their Legal Department to answer a few question I have about this organization legal stance. No one has contacted me back with any information as of yet.
Who has given this organization the right to hinder my advancement to become an Architect?
Why is this organization the gate keepers?
Are there other ways to bypass this organization?
I do not want to be forced to sign over my rights to this organization to become an Architect... I do not want to pay this group money that is unnecessary. I have already paid the university and will be paying the ARE's $1500 for their test. It just does not make sense.
Can anyone help me with these question?
