As many are aware a few months ago mgoodwin submitted NCARB‘s IDP hours to the Georgia Board in order to be approved to begin taking the ARE. Sadly NCARB‘s website does not have information on how to contact your board of choice to determine if there was any follow-up required. mgoodwin was left believing that he would be contacted with further information or being told “you’re approved”. This did not happen, a follow-up email had to be sent to NCARB to which they copied mgoodwin to an email to the Georgia board for communication purposes and showing that the hours had been submitted.
Only after emailing the contact at the Georgia Board was it found out that an application along with $50 had to be submitted along with the NCARB record.
For those future Architects that need to get begin taking their exams in Georgia, don’t forget to go to ww.sos.ga.gov/plb and apply online and pay your $50 after you have had NCARB submit your completed IDP record.
Will keep you posted on further developments.
