Architectural degrees have varied levels of education just like many fields. There are additional accreditation's available for an architect that wants to continue their education further, and not just make pretty pictures of elevations on a set of plans. Many architects join the AIA (American Institute of Architects), and have continuing education credits every year. They learn new skills and subject matter from various presentations and classes. Usually larger architectural firms participate in this organization due to the fee schedule to be a member but there are local and state chapters located across the USA.
An architect can have a bachelors, masters, or Doctorate degree in architecture. Additionally architects can select a field of expertise (ie interior design, healthcare, alternative energy, etc).
With a degree in hand and certification from NAAB (National Architectural Board), the architect can further their education and become N.C.A.R.B. Accredited.
N.C.A.R.B. (National Council of Architectural Registration Boards). When an architect wants to expand his working territory geographically they must be registered in each state and hold a license to practice in each state or territory. N.C.A.R.B. is the organization that provides the documentation and certification that an architect is qualified to participate in practice in multiple geographic areas. The great advantage to having an N.C.A.R.B Architect is that they have had additional training hours in various climate zones, various regional special construction needs, and local building codes and IBC construction. Many N.C.A.R.B. Architects are also LEED or green building certified or hold Construction Management degrees as well.
By choosing a team that has N.C.A.R.B. architects you are getting an architect with a diverse background trained in multiple disciplines and interested in keeping learning refreshed on a more consistent basis.
