AIA Nebraska: ARE-IDP

Continuing Education

AIA Nebraska offers ARE Preparation Seminars

The Series encompasses a basic review of the major topics covered in each division of the A.R.E. and serves to assist the Candidate’s preparation by providing an organized approach to studying and by presenting concise and practical reference materials. The Seminar is presented by professionals with experience in each specific division of the A.R.E. Candidates will receive handout materials for review and may participate in an open question and answer period following each Seminar.

The AIA NE/ARE Study Seminar Series is not presented by a professional profit-making corporation, but by a non-profit organization whose primary goal is to better prepare each candidate for passing the exam. We rely heavily on volunteer participation of speakers and AIA NE members to provide an excellent, low-cost structure for exam preparation as well as the opportunity to share resources and form study groups.

Contact AIA Nebraska 402/858-1929 or e-mail if you are interested in accessing past ARE Study Sessions (most are available) Or if you are interested in receiving information regarding upcoming ARE Preperation seminars

Study Guide Information


AIA Omaha and AIA NE have donated one complete set of Kaplan ARE 4.0 Study Guides to the UNO Library.  This includes: 8 study books, 7 practice vignette books, 6 question and answer books and, 6 sets of flashcards

In order to check out the study guides you will either need to be a student at UNO, or you will need to purchase a one year “Community User” library card for $25. 

All sections have been placed on reserve and can be checked out of the library for seven days.  If you have any questions, contact for help.


You can also obtain most of the ARE study guides at the UNL College of Architecture library. Non-students (in other words, practicing professionals) need to purchase a $50 annual borrower's permit. To purchase the permit, you need to visit the Love Library's Circulation desk.
