The seminar aimed to help examiners through exam preparation and to foster prolific and productive architectural practice. 

In line with the Republic Act No. 9266, also known as "The Architecture Act of 2004," candidates for architecture licensure examination are required to have a certified record of at least two (2) years or equivalent of diversified architectural experience which is duly certified by a registered or licensed architect. Furthermore, the Logbook of Diversified Experience in Architecture is a requirement for admission to the licensure examination for architecture. 

In collaboration with the United Architects of the Philippines Graduate Auxiliary - Tarlac Chapter and the ALE Support Group led by CAFA alumni, CAFA successfully has undertaken the activity for its graduates for the said licensure examination.

Renowned speakers and architects attended this year's Logbook Filing Seminar with ALE Support Group headed by alumni Ar. Harold Hilario, Ar. Nikko Andrada, Ar. Xristianne Tongoy, Ar. John Bryan Peralta, and Ar. Sheena Hugo. They have imparted their review experiences, understanding, tips and tricks on reviewing with the examinees.

Meanwhile, the resource speakers also demonstrated the correct procedures for filling out the Logbook on Diversified Experience in Architecture (DEA).

The extension activity concluded successfully, with registered participants receiving complimentary ALE review guides created by the ALE Support Group. This event marked the beginning of the 4th series of ALE In-House Reviews conducted by CAFA Expert Service Providers for aspiring ALE takers.

The extension project aligns with Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), notably SDG 4: Quality Education and SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, by providing quality education, human capacity development, and economic growth.
