Practice of Architecture Learning Series (PALS)


Congratulations, you now have access to the new revised PALS program and the Zoom tutorial sessions. We know face to face sessions are very popular and greatly assist graduates preparing for the AACA Architectural Practice Exam (APE) Parts 2 and 3. The first PALS online tutor session is scheduled for Friday 26 June.

We are running the first series of seven sessions, each on a Fridays, 12:30pm to 2pm (AEST). They will start with case studies and we will provide you with guide answers. This will be followed by a session on questions prepared and submitted to us by you.

Each Zoom session will conclude with general questions in the Zoom chat room answered live.

The sessions will be facilitated by the Institute and we will also have staff members working behind the scenes to collect the questions and manage the Zoom sessions.

What if I cannot attend the PALS online tutorial sessions?

The sessions will be recorded and you can view them later in your own time.

Are there missing modules?

We have uploaded 17 of the 21 recordings, we will upload the remaining three shortly.

What if I studied the old modules?

You will still have access to the previous modules until the end of August 2020. We suggest you work your way through the new modules to prepare you even more for the AACA Architectural Practice Exam (APE) Parts 2 and 3.
