COVID-19 Resources Page

As a member-based organization, AIA Seattle is rapidly shifting its response to this public health crisis with remote learning and engagement opportunities, and aggregating regional and national resources for our members. We are here for you during this difficult time, and all staff are continuing to work remotely to serve you. Below, we have compiled a list of membership-, business- and management-related resources to connect you with what you need. Programming updates will continue to be made on our events calendar, and homepage. Check out the webinar recordings from our recent live programming on our Education Programs page.

Have questions or resources you’d like added to this list? Please contact Anthony Collins, Membership & Development Coordinator at We will add things here as we find them.

  • ArchiPrep is free through August.
  • Our colleagues at AIA San Francisco put together a web-based web-based ARE program that is available to all members. Here you can find their 2020 course schedule, and here is where you can sign up. The second link will allow you to sign up for courses one-by-one, rather than in a chunk per the linked PDF.
  • Prometric has decided to keep all test centers in North America closed until at least May 31, 2020. As a result, NCARB has extended their no-cost rescheduling period for Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) appointments and is adding an additional six-month rolling clock extension to all valid passing scores.
