Is Getting an Architecture License Worth It?

This question was debated in a great article titled "Setting up emerging professionals for licensure and success" published in AIArchitect by Korey White, AIA on June 30, 2017. Click here for the full article.

Our 2017 Associate Director, Jason Takeuchi, Assoc. AIA with Ferraro Choi And Associates was quoted in the article:

"This discrepancy seems to come down to a communication issue between firm leadership and emerging professionals. Jason Takeuchi, Assoc. AIA, of Ferraro Choi in Hawaii believes that the current generation of leaders has “viewed licensure as valued and necessary,” whereas the newer generation of emerging professionals doesn’t always see it as a critical step in their careers. Like many, Choi’s firm has encouraged licensure as a means to get to work on desirable projects, and as a tool to become exposed to the business of architecture."
