Program description

This is a two-evening class on April 21 and 27 for those preparing to take the 4.0 Architecture Registration Exam. The format of this class is intended to be interactive. Each of the two sessions will be a combo of quiz questions and vignettes. Registrants will receive material in advance of the class to review and to prepare for class participation. The first evening will provide an introduction to the vignettes but will primarily cover topics such as safety, economy, practicality, durability, and architectural expression of modern building materials and methods. Also included are construction methods, specifications, and potential defects. The second evening will cover the vignettes for this section of the exam in greater depth – Accessibility/Ramp, Roof Plan, and Stair Design.
