Hello Dr. Architecture, I would like to get more information on the steps needed to be taken to work in the U.S. [my husband is an Architect who studied abroad (University of Buenos Aires - Argentina)]. He has extensive experience in the field and would like to know what information he needs to provide to revalidate his Architecture degree. Thank you.
First, your best source to learn the requirements of becoming an architect in the U.S. is NCARB - National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (www.ncarb.org). They have links to the state registration boards as an individual must ultimately be licensed by U.S. jurisdiction.
They do have a program, Broadly Experienced Foreign Architect (BEFA) that is a multi-step process to assist foreign architects with experience to become licensed.
Also, individuals may have to have their foreign education evaluated by EESA - Education Evaluation Services for Architects as part of the process.
