Licensure Stories: How I Achieved My Unreachable Goal of Becoming a Licensed Architect After 20 Years in Architecture

Introducing Licensure Stories! We explore the personal journeys of architects who have successfully navigated the path to licensure via the ARE exams.

On the third episode of Licensure Stories, Marc Teer (founder of Black Spectacles) is joined by Jamie Bieser, an accomplished architect at Widseth based in Baxter, Minnesota.

You’ll learn how Jamie achieved his "unreachable goal" of becoming a licensed architect, how he studied to pass each exam on the first try, and how his career changed once he became a licensed architect. Finally, Jamie wants to remind you to "remember to play" and "stay fascinated"!

Here's how Jamie passed all 6 divisions of the ARE 5.0 Exam: Practice Management, Project Management, Programming & Analysis, Project Planning & Design, Project Development & Documentation and Construction & Evaluation. This is Jamie Bieser's Licensure Story.
