All applicants must obtain pre-authorization approval to sit for an examination from either: The Arizona Board of Technical Registration or CLARB by Auto-approval
To apply for the Landscape Architect Registration Examination ("L.A.R.E."), candidates should contact the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards ("CLARB") directly and complete a CLARB Council Record. The CLARB application process includes completing the CLARB application form and providing verification of required information such as education and work experience. Once confirmation of your required information is received, CLARB will admit you to the L.A.R.E. and will forward all pre-examination information to you directly.
For L.A.R.E. Administration Dates: Contact CLARB:
In addition to serving as the application for the L.A.R.E., the Council Record also provides the documentation that you will need when you apply for licensure in Arizona and in other jurisdictions. This eliminates the need for you to gather this information redundantly. Council Record holders are also entitled to discounts on important examination publications such as the examination handbook, The Road to Licensure and Beyond, including "Understanding the L.A.R.E. and Diagnostic Vignettes".
Once you have completed the L.A.R.E., you may apply for licensure in Arizona. Instruct CLARB to transmit your Council Record to the Arizona State Board of Technical Registration, and follow the instructions for professional licensure application found on this web site. Please Note: Although you may have successfully completed and passed the L.A.R.E., you must still fulfill the education and/or experience requirements of A.R.S § 32-122.01 Qualifications for professional registration.
