The Board's Role in Public Protection

The Board was established to protect the public through the regulation of the practice of architecture, professional engineering, land surveying, landscape architecture, professional geology, professional soil science and certified interior design.

We ensure that individuals meet the education, examination and experience standards for licensure or certification, and maintain their records in good standing.

We take disciplinary action against those who violate the statutes, rules and standards governing the practice of the professions.

The Board's authority is defined by and within certain statutes and rules that direct Board operations and licensee oversight. See the links below:
