The AXP™ Portfolio is an alternate method of documenting experience—designed exclusively for professionals who have at least two years of experience that falls outside of the five-year reporting requirement.

Your candidate will submit a collection of PDFs, images, drawings, certificates, and/or documents, called exhibits, to demonstrate their ability to competently perform all 96 tasks identified by the AXP. As an AXP Portfolio supervisor, you’ll review and evaluate these exhibits for competency. Learn more about reviewing and approving an AXP Portfolio.

To be an AXP Portfolio supervisor, you must be one of the following:

  • Current architect supervisor. You have been licensed to practice architecture in the United States for at least six months, have known the candidate for at least six months, and the candidate currently works under you.
  • Architect mentor. You have been licensed to practice architecture in the United States for at least one year and have known the candidate for at least one year. This is only an option if the candidate does not currently work for an architect.
