     Registration Authority:        Board of Architects of Queensland (Telephone: 07 3224 4482)

                                    First Floor, The Mansions, 40 George Street, Brisbane
     Address:                       PO Box 15343, City East Qld 4002

1. Applications must be received no later than 4.00 pm on the due date. Late applications will not be accepted.
2. Please provide the APPLICATION FORM and other documents described on it in three separate bundles –
   all the ORIGINALS in one set and two sets of photocopies for the oral examiners. The contents of the Log
   Book should be removed from the folder. Do not bind or put in folders but fasten with file fasteners. Bulldog
   clips are not acceptable. Documents should be in the order indicated on this sheet.
3. Please attach a recent passport-size colour PHOTO to the original of the Application (A colour photocopy is
   not acceptable on the original). Place a copy of the application on the front of the two photocopies.
4. The FEE for Parts 1 & 2 is $400. (The invoice with payment attached should only be included in the bundle of
   originals.)
5. The CANDIDATE'S CHECKLIST attached, showing your hours and signed by you, must be included in the
   bundle of originals.
6. Copies of your ARCHITECTURAL QUALIFICATION certified by a Justice of the Peace must be included
   in each bundle. The number of the Justice of the Peace must be identifiable.
7. A STATUTORY DECLARATION (plus copies) must be included, attesting to the accuracy of all documents
   submitted for the APE.
8. A brief EMPLOYMENT RECORD, supplied as a cover sheet on your Statement of Practical Experience, is
   required so that the Regional Convenor may try to prevent candidates being placed with an oral examiner with
   whom they may have worked.
9. CHECK your STATEMENT OF PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE. Are the employer's name and the
   supervising architect's signature and registration number on each page? Is your Statement cross-referenced to
   the competencies? (Curriculum Vitae, drawings, photos and letters of reference are not acceptable.)
10. The LOG BOOK IDENTIFICATION SHEET with photo, from the front of your logbook, must be included.
11. Do your SUMMARY SHEETS accurately summarise your log sheets? There are three different types of
    summary sheets: Executive, Participant and Observer. Discrepancies in the summarising of log sheets may
    result in rejection of the Log Books by the examiners.
12. Check your LOG SHEETS carefully. Are all your log sheets signed by an architect? Is that architect
    identifiable? Are your individual log sheets all dated? Log books which are not satisfactorily completed,
    including dating and signing requirements, may be rejected by the examiners. Do you have at least 3000 hours
    in the mandatory competencies logged? Does your experience meet the new eligibility requirements:
         • You must have a minimum of 40 hours of experience in each of the seven mandatory elements of
             competency - Elements 2.2.2 (or 2.1.2*), 2.2.4 (or 2.1.4*), 3.1.2, 3.1.4, 3.2.3, 3.2.5, and 3.3.1.
         • You must have a minimum total of 120 hours of experience at Executive level across at least three of
             the mandatory elements of competency.
         • You may have no more than 160 hours of experience at Observer level in each of Elements 3.2.3 and
             3.3.1 (these are the only two mandatory elements in which Observer experience is accepted).
13. Do you have the AACA APE guides to the requirements of the Architectural Practice Examination: The
     booklets, entitled “Guide for Candidates – NCSA01/GC” and "Reference Guide for Candidates -
     NCSA01/REF/G", are downloadable at no charge from AACA's website: www.aaca.org.au. In addition, a
     sample paper and some supplementary references are also available.
14. Are you familiar with the Queensland Architect Act 2002 (www.legislation.qld.gov.au) and the Board's Code
    of Practice (www.boaq.qld.gov.au - Resources)?
