PREPA.R.E., Inc (PREPARE) was founded in October, 2002 on the premise of providing quality education to “prep” candidates for the Structural Systems component of the Architect Registration Exam (A.R.E.). Teaching professionals and students keeps us on the cutting-edge of the latest trends; thus keeping us current in the professional practice of architecture and engineering. We are able to bring our experiences of professional practice back to the classroom. This cyclical process of knowledge and implementation is a big part of the success of PREPARE's educational and professional endeavors. The education pursuits of PREPARE provide us with the greatest satisfaction when our clients inform us of their successful completion of their exams.
Our "flagship" Structural Systems Course is now complimented through course offerings for the Building Systems Exam and Construction Documents and Services exam. We are currently developing materials for the Site Planning & Design Exam, Schematic Design and the NCEES Structural Engineering Exam(s).
Our Mission: “Bettering the Built Environment for Everyone” ©. - PREPARE, when considered on paper, is a small business (Education, Architecture and Engineering Firm) and our firm’s portfolio of work demonstrates successful projects nationally and internationally. However, our impact on the global built environment is greatly magnified when considering those we have instructed. We understand that we cannot provide professional design services on every project, but we are indirectly present through our students, the current and future leaders of the profession.
