What is the difference between a My NCARB account and an NCARB Record?

A My NCARB account is a free account that provides access to several NCARB resources, such as the ARE 5.0 demonstration exam.

An NCARB Record is a paid, verified online account of your professional history—including your education, experience, and examination details. You will need an NCARB Record to complete the AXP, take the ARE, and become NCARB certified.

If you are an AXP supervisor or mentor, you only need a free account to access your candidate’s experience reports. Learn more about reviewing experience reports.
