State of California Architect Seal Requirements Feature Post Image

In the state of California, architects are held to a high standard when it comes to professional licensing. To become an officially licensed architect in California, one must complete an educational program that fulfills all requirements set forth by the California Architects Board (CAB). Once these requirements have been met, the applicant must apply for and obtain a CAB license. As part of this process, they will need to obtain a rubber stamp with their license number - preferably 1-3/4” in diameter - which must be photographically reproducible and should contain their license number preceded by “C-” as well as the term “Licensed Architect.” Additionally, each licensee's stamp should have either a renewal date or a line for them to write in the renewal date. The two stars on the outer ring of the seal are optional.

All of these components are necessary to ensure that those applying for architectural licenses in California are held to the highest standards and meet all expectations set forth by the CAB. Each user needs a stamp that meets all of these requirements, so they must understand what is required before beginning the process. With everything considered, obtaining an official architecture license in California is a long but rewarding process!
