Participate in the Licensure Task Analysis

April 4-18

The landscape architecture community has seen an increase in threats to licensure over the last year. Do your part to help defend licensure and your scope of work by taking the 2016 Task Analysis survey. Your personal participation will support the profession, help protect the public’s health, safety and welfare and defend licensure.

The Task Analysis, conducted by the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB), is a study of the profession that ensures the content of the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E) remains legally defensible and relevant. The Task Analysis results are also used to defend your scope of practice as a landscape architect. Our Board has partnered with CLARB to promote the survey because your participation:

  • Strengthens the case for licensure and your scope of practice:  The results will demonstrate the knowledge, skills and abilities that landscape architects rely on to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare.
  • Ensures all critical aspects of licensed practice are recognized: As the scope of practice of a landscape architect evolves so should the licensure exam. Your input helps ensure the exam stays defensible and relevant.
  • Ensures that your voice is heard: Provides you with an opportunity to inform the knowledge, skills and abilities required to protect the public as a licensed landscape architect, and ensures that the voice of your state’s landscape architects is represented in the research.
  • Requires only 30 minutes of your time to complete the survey but will have a great effect on our profession.

New for this year, the Task Analysis is global! As practice continues to increase globally, CLARB has partnered with the International Federation of Landscape Architects to administer the survey throughout the world for the first time. Data collected beyond North America is for research purposes only and will not impact the L.A.R.E.
