Registration for architectural licensure in Oregon (new rules to pay attention to) as of February 2020

RickB-Astoria

Regardless of licensure path, direct in-state registration or reciprocity, AXP hours must be earned through working under an architect. AXP Portfolio method is not accepted. If you earn your AXP via AXP Portfolio, you maybe required to redo AXP hours until you have the required AXP hours completed in the approved method. 

It doesn't matter if you are NCARB Certified. Pay close attention to OAR 806-010-0010.

Posted below is the important text. This applies to the other rules on registration by examination and registration by reciprocity.

It is worth letting people know so if they use that AXP Portfolio process that they may run into problems with registration or reciprocity (even with NCARB Certificate) in Oregon.

Otherwise, they would have to go back through earning AXP hours the traditional way in order to get their hours and license to practice in Oregon even though they maybe licensed in another state that accepts AXP Portfolio.
