How To Prepare For Nigerian Institute Of Architects- Professional Practice Examination


Preparing, entering for and passing the Nigerian Institute of Architects (N.I.A) Professional Practice examination P.P.E is the dream of every young Architect in Nigeria. If you have completed your Bacherlor's and master's degrees  from an accredited Nigerian university or a recognized foreign university, and you have worked actively under a registered Architect in Nigeria who is already registered with the N.I.A, for a minimum of two(2) calendar years, then you may apply for the Professional Practice Examination. It is organised twice every year, in March and in September. It is the only examination that qualifies you to become a chartered Architect in Nigeria. It is dreaded by many for a number of obvious reasons. 

The process(es) required to be followed by an aspiring registrant have been called everything including 'rigorous' 

Some of the Most Important Requirements for Entry include :

  1. A completed logbook shewing professional practice experience duly signed by the Supervising Architect.

If you are looking for how to create stunning Architectural animations, walkthroughs and complete working drawings and specifications that help you to put the WAWW!! on your client's face, then you are not alone in your search. Thousands of Architects, Engineers, students and ordinary researchers have been redirected to this page right after performing a simple google search.

Architectural presentation has simply moved on from the era of hand-drawn sketches to an age dominated with the increasing demand for computer generated(aided) design and drafting (hereafter referred to as C.A.A.D). Some Architects attribute this to the perceived superiority of the print quality (presentations) versus the hand made. Others say it simply saves time and improves their productivity, while some think it is simply a matter of how opportuned the Architect or Engineer is in learning the relevant C.A.A.D application packages.
