Ncarb Testing Completed

I've received my 'Pass' letter for the last of the 9 test administered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards required to become a licensed architect. Just a few paperwork hoops left to jump though and I'll be able to call myself an 'Architect.' The title Architect is protected by a title law, and calling oneself an architect without holding an architects license is similar to posing as a medical doctor. Architects are licensed by the states in order to 'protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public.' Obviously it's not in the best interest of the public to have any yokel designing public buildings. Perhaps I'll post more later on the path to becoming an architect, for those who might be curious about such a cryptic subject.
