It is a legal requirement that any person using the title 'architect' or offering services to the public as an architect must be registered with the Architects' Board within their State.
To apply, you must:
Step 1: Confirm that you have satisfied the academic requirements, and obtain evidence.
Step 2: After you have satisfied the academic requirements, you will be required to undertake a period of practical experience, followed by the Architectural Practice Examination (APE).
Step 3: Having completed the requirements of steps one and two, you must apply for registration to the Architects' Board in the State or Territory in which you wish to practice, pay the fees determined by the Board and provide all information as required by the Board. For contact details for each Architects' Board, visit the AACA website.
Under Australian Commonwealth, State/Territory legislation and New Zealand legislation, designed to facilitate free trade in services, if you are registered as an architect in any Australian jurisdiction, or in New Zealand, you may apply for registration within Australia and New Zealand under these mutual recognition provisions without repeating the above steps.
You should contact the Board in the State or Territory in which second or subsequent registration is sought to determine application procedures and applicable fees.
