- Who is my AXP supervisor?
Your AXP supervisor manages you on a daily basis and is ultimately responsible for your work. Their main task is to assign projects that give you the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills required by the AXP, as well as provide feedback that helps guide your professional development. Your supervisor will also review your experience reports and certify that your work meets the expectations and requirements of the AXP. Learn more about your supervisor’s role.
- What should I do if the experience report my candidate submitted isn’t accurate?
If you do not agree with all the information your candidate has documented, you should return their report for edits. Be sure to review the necessary changes with your candidate and provide feedback that will help them in the future. Once your candidate has made the changes you discussed, they can return the report to you for approval. Learn more about reviewing experience reports.
- 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.
