    Hello David: I am/was starting to get serious in studying for a late December or January test date. I tried to sign up online through PSI, and wasn’t able to so I called the CAB on Monday, Tuesday, finally emailed them today. No responses, then I saw your posting and am a bit worried.
    I plan to continue studying for a January or February test date, assuming this is a quick hiccup by the CAB.
    Question: I have NCARB and an Arizona Architect licenese, am I correct in my understanding that CAB does not offer a license via NCARB or reciprocity?
    Thank you,
    Reuben Wootton

    It is my understanding that the process is to have your NCARB file sent to the CA registration board and they will accept that as evidence that you are currently licensed. (If this isn’t done, then you would presumably have to sit for the full exam) Once they recieve it and an application fee for them to review it, then they would give you permission to sit for the CSE. Each step of the y way takes time and, of course, a separate fee. It took me 60+ days to get through just that process, between the NCARB application to forward the file and the CA board approving me to take the exam.

    Best of Luck!
