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 or the AXP supervisor portal. An NCARB Record is a paid service that documents 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.
