Landscape Architect Licensure Candidates

Important Acronyms

CLARB - Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards

LARE - Landscape Architect Registration Examination administered by CLARB

LAAB - Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board


The Process

In a nutshell, candidates seeking to become architects in Wyoming should have completed 1) an architecture degree from a program accredited by LAAB, 2) documentation of satisfactory experience according to the Board's Rules, and 3) successfully passed all sections of the L.A.R.E. Once all three requirements have been completed, applicants should complete the "Landscape Architect by Examination" application on the Board's Application and & Misc Forms page. That link can be found on the left.

Education

The Board's Practice Act requires that all architect applicants have completed a LAAB accredited landscape architectural degree to meet the education requirement.

Examination

Wyoming is a direct registration state which means candidates for licensure (formerly called interns) should apply directly to the CLARB for examination eligibility.

Experience

Applicants must demonstrate three (3) years work experience that exposed the applicant to all phases of work integral to the practice of landscape architecture and that was performed under the supervision of a licensed landscape architect, licensed architect, licensed civil engineer, or credentialed planner.


To Remember

Every state's requirements differ, so please contact each state in which you plan to practice to learn of their requirements.

The Board does not require that licensees maintain an NCARB Certificate. However, the Board highly encourages licensees to consider doing so. The NCARB Certificate will help facilitate reciprocity as you begin practicing in various states. Twenty-five (25) licensing jurisdictions require the NCARB Certificate, but all fifty-four (54) accept it.
