Part of L.A.R.E. Prep Week offered by ASLA

Thursday, May 23

If you want to practice all the things you’re learning in school now, you need to be licensed. In this session, get educated on all things licensure, including the three E’s—the requirements for Education, Examination and Experience needed to call yourself a landscape architect and provide landscape architectural services in all 50 states.

Representatives from CLARB and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) will also break down the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E.) and explore the bright career paths you’ll have access to as a licensed landscape architect in the private sector and with federal entities such as the US Army Corps of Engineers.
