ARE Study Sessions

ARE Study Group Graphic

AIA New Orleans has begun a series of study sessions to help get our members licensed.  We have purchased study materials that can be accessed in the AIA New Orleans office during the study sessions, or by making an appointment.

The study sessions meet every Tuesday, and are currently divided in two groups beginning at 6:30pm and 8:00pm respectively.  This study group consists of four to eight two-hour sessions per section of each test. It is intended that the participants have scheduled to take the tests once the individual sessions related to that section of the test have been completed.

We have already had great interest  and participation in this program that begins in February of each calendar year.  If you are interested in participating in the current or future sessions, please write to

The study sessions are free for AIA Members and $5 for non-members.
