    Try becoming a Certified Access Specialist in California. $500 registration fee to prove eligibility. $800 for the 2 hour exam. $300 once you pass. $300 renewal every 3 years.

    Best of luck to all who are working towards becoming an architect.

    Yah, but sometimes I ask myself is it really worth it? lol

    I waited till I was out of school 13 years, completed all but one test on the first try.
    less than 3 months after becoming registered I got laid-off.
    Talk about worth it!
