Board of Landscape Architecture
Streamlined Applications Released
In an effort to assist applicants through the licensure process and to reduce the number of deficient applications, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation and the Board of Landscape Architecture conducted a complete review and revision of all applications. The updated applications were launched July 10, 2012.
The Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) takes over the administration of Sections C and E of the Landscape Architectural Registration Examination (LARE)
Effective for the December 2010 examination, CLARB will be registering, administering, and notifying candidates of grades for sections C and E of the Landscape Architectural Registration Examination (LARE). The CLARB registration for the December examination will be from August 9, 2010 until October 12, 2010. Please check the CLARB website at www.CLARB.org or call 571.432.0332 for more information.
The LARE is a five-part national licensing exam. Prior to the recent change, CLARB administered sections A, B and D, and the Department of Business and Professional Regulation administered sections C and E. CLARB will schedule candidates for the examination and notify candidates directly of grades. This change will enable candidates to test with one entity, saving them time that would otherwise be required in applying to both CLARB and DBPR. This will also allow the candidate more time to schedule an examination retake if necessary.
The department will continue to develop and administer Section F of the examination, which is a computer-based examination that tests the applicant on Florida laws and rules. Section F is offered daily by the department’s contracted vendor at sites throughout Florida.
