The Australian Institute of Architects and its participating members offer education to graduates on the practice of architecture through the national PALS program. It is comprised of 15 online modules integrated with face to face tutorials facilitated by practicing architects and local experts and held in the local state and territory offices. The emphasis is on adult learning principles so you study the online modules in your own time and attend sessions that give you an opportunity to gain expert advice, share knowledge amongst your peers and get in touch with a broad range of Institute events.
The Regional Division base a PALS course in the Newcastle over 3 consecutive Saturdays - dates to be advised for 2017.
The course is a personal and interactive program for a small number of students. This more intimate discussion format enables more detailed group discussions. Note that if numbers do not reach eight, the course will be cancelled and a full refund will be offered to those registered.
