Experienced Practitioners – fast-track to registration
AACA’s Experienced Practitioner Assessment (EPA) provides an alternate fast-track pathway to registration for practitioners with relevant education and experience at executive level in complex projects.
Assessment of applications is conducted via an administrative review for eligibility verification, followed by a panel-based Competency Assessment Interview.
Successful completion of this program allows applicants to bypass the Architectural Practice Examination and apply directly for registration as an architect with their state or territory architects registration board.
Note: Applicants can apply for either the EPA or the APE, but not both concurrently.
Successful applicants may also request a Skills Assessment letter for migration purposes.
Applications are generally finalised within 15 weeks. Timeframes are dependent upon the submission of all necessary documentation and the interview availability (if applicable).
