Passing the Landscape Architects Registration Exam (LARE) is the final step to becoming a licensed Landscape Architect. Studying for the LARE can be confusing and stressful, but UCLA Extension's highly regarded program provides exceptional preparation for all areas of the exam. 

Each prep course is designed to focus specifically on the LARE exam you are planning to take. You can expect full-day classes filled with exam practice, tips for studying, study materials to practice on your own, and an opportunity to engage with the instructor and other students. Our workshops are intense, focused, and can help you meet your goal of licensure.

Taught by nationally recognized LARE Prep instructor Angela Woodward, our convenient one- or two-day weekend workshops are available live online in Fall and Winter quarters.
