The Quest for Licensure: Part III
Taking the LARE is only the beginning of the licensure process,
an ongoing part of professional development.
By Heather Hammatt, ASLA
Fifteen of the 45 states that currently offer the Landscape
Architect Registration Examination (LARE) require that candidates
pass all five sections within a limited number of attempts. Fortunately
for me, Maryland, where I took the exam, is not one of them.
After weeks of anticipation, the results of my first attempt
to conquer the LARE finally arrived in my mailbox in late September.
I passed three out of five sections, putting Section A: Legal and
Administrative Aspects of Practice, Section B: Analytical Aspects
of Practice, and Section C: Planning and Site Design behind me.
My own personal "road to licensure" will continue to challenge me,
with section D: Structural Considerations, Materials, and Methods
and Section E: Grading, Drainage, and Storm Water Management still
unaccomplished. However, the format and testing environment are
now demystified. I will be able to face the remaining challenge
next June bolstered by the wisdom of experience.
