A feed back on Ncarb 5.0 divisions, and its comparison with other two professional requirements, first with engineers and second with law professionals.

    Canada has already made such a change.  NCARB's are still accepted for the various Canadian jurisdictions, however, the licensing boards decided to create their own examinations (it would be if AIA decided to do so) and have come up with an exam that is divided in 4 sections over a period of 2 days.  The passing rate is 85%, which in my opinion is more fair.  Of course, since NCARB is a private company, it is in their best interest to have a low passing rate as they get more money with each fail.

    Here's an example of the EXAC examination.

    Section 1

    • Programming
    • Site and Environmental Analysis
    • Cost Management
    • Coordinating Engineering Systems
    • Schematic Design
    • Design Development

    Section 2 

    • Code Research (NBC 2015 Edition)

    Section 3 

    • Final Project

    Section 4 

    • Bidding and Contract Negotiations
    • Construction Phase – Office
    • Construction Phase – Site
    • Project Management
