ARE Boot Camp giveaway

The ARE Boot Camp

For the past few months, I have been working on creating a program to help ARE Candidates be more successful with the Architecture Registration Exam.

I have created a 10-week program for first-time exam takers called The ARE Boot Camp. We will:

  • Create a schedule to get you quickly up-to-speed and studying for your first ARE.
  • Guide you as you study during these 10 weeks and provide accountability for your work.
  • Set you up for success, so you have the knowledge you need to finish the remaining 6 exams on your own.
  • Provide a supportive environment for everyone in the group to learn from and help each other.
  • Teach you how to save time when studying for the remaining 6 exams.

The first group will begin the week of September 14, 2015, and the second will start the first week of November 2015. Each group will only have 5 members.

The Problem with The ARE Boot Camp

As excited as I am to get this program off the ground, I also realize that it is geared toward the “I’m just getting started” ARE Candidate, and I am only signing up 10 people.

This excludes 98% of the existing Young Architect audience.

Many people have emailed me and told me they are extremely interested, but they don’t fit the specific criteria of the ARE Candidate I am looking for with this group.


The Solution

Well… I don’t have one.

After I run this group a few times, I will be better-informed about how to grow The Boot Camp and serve the larger ARE Candidate community in the future. That should happen around the beginning of next year.

In the meantime, I have also decided to buy and give away $400 worth of Architecture Registration Exam study materials. As part of the kickoff of The ARE Boot Camp, this giveaway is for all the hardworking ARE Candidates living in the trenches of this brutal exam, and everyone is eligible.
