My name is Chelsea Weibust and I'll be your instructor for this course.
I have been creating online tutorials for over 3 years and love that I'm able to share my knowledge to help others succeed.
While taking the 4.0 architectural exams, I found that the vignettes were my favorite part! After hearing complaints from others who had used NCARB's vignette software in the past, I never thought I'd enjoy using their software.
I realized that the reason I was able to work through the vignettes with such ease was because I developed a plan for myself to work through the building program, I developed a process for working through the software, and finally I took the time to practice the vignettes over and over, from start to finish.
If you want to learn to master the vignettes, sign up for this course. Don't let the vignettes be the thing holding you back from advancing in your career.
