Washington, DC—Interns and architects with an NCARB Record can now navigate their information with greater ease thanks to several new features in My NCARB that provide more transparency and access to important NCARB services. The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) has launched a redesigned NCARB Record—the latest enhancement to Council information systems intended to help customers more efficiently access vital information and services.
“The profession is evolving. Member Board roles, emerging technology, new trends on campuses, and the collaborative nature of design teams all call for an NCARB that can also evolve,” said NCARB CEO Michael J. Armstrong during NCARB’s 94th Annual Meeting in late June. “Improving our information systems is just one way we will push NCARB into the future.”
Easy Access to Services and New Features
Record and Certificate holders who access their online records will see more streamlined navigation and find relevant information displayed in categories that reflect the path to licensure and certification. The new NCARB Record design allows architects and interns to easily update their profile information, add and track their educational details, and view and edit their registration information at any time. Customers will also receive automatic reminders in their Record when it’s time to renew, saving them time and helping ensure their Record or Certificate doesn’t accidentally lapse and require reactivation.
Access to the online experience reporting system is now a fully integrated aspect of the Record, allowing a seamless approach to documenting the Intern Development Program (IDP). And when the new My Examination service launches later this summer, Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) candidates will be able to view exam score reports, testing history, rolling clock information, and ARE rolling-clock dates from their NCARB Record.
