LARE Prep Virtual Workshop Announcement

Dear L.A.R.E.y is brought to you by the ASLA LARE Prep Committee. Please note that ASLA only endorses resources and materials provided by ASLA and CLARB. Send your questions to

Dear L.A.R.E.y,

I passed Section 1 last fall and, hopefully, will pass Section 2 of the exam during this April administration period. I’d love to get a jump on studying for Section 3, but I didn’t see any pre-recorded Virtual Workshops similar to those for Section 1 and Section 2. Can you advise me if ASLA has any virtual learning workshops for Section 3?

Andrew in Kansas

Dear Andrew,

Your question has great timing! First off, it sounds like you took advantage of last fall’s live Virtual Workshops for Section 1 and 2, or at least purchased the on-demand versions from ASLA’s online learning portal. We hope you found the virtual workshops to be helpful in your examination preparations.

But returning to your question, the ASLA LARE Prep Committee is excited to offer two more installments of our Virtual LARE Prep Workshops this coming May. This time our experienced instructors will cover Section 3 – Design and Section 4 – Grading, Drainage, and Construction Documents. And if you register by Sunday, April 25 you can save $10 with our early-bird registration price of $40.00

These two workshops will have a similar structure as our Section 1 and 2 workshops, by covering the content and format of the exams, providing sample questions, and discussing test-taking tips and study strategies. Workshop instructors will also engage with participants in Q&A. But based on the feedback of our first installment of workshops we’ve lengthened Section 3 and 4 to two and half hours each. 

We hope you’ll be able to join us in May.
