This June, the Intern Development Program (IDP) will be overhauled into six practice-based areas and two experience settings. During the latest episode of NCARB Live, our experts gave advice on navigating these changes.

Watch as NCARB’s Experience + Education Assistant Director Martin Smith, AIA, NCARB, LEED Green Associate, and Customer Relations Director Roxanne Alston answer questions from aspiring architects.

Here’s a sample of your questions:

  • What are the IDP supervisor requirements for hands-on construction experience?
  • I live in a jurisdiction that requires 5,600 hours—where will I see my hours in the reporting system?
  • Can all of my IDP hours be earned in experience setting A?
  • What will happen to supplemental experience?
  • If I’ve already completed the required 3,740 hours, will the overhaul of IDP affect me?
  • What should I do if I have an exemption?

If you have specific questions about your Record, please contact customer service at 202/879-0520.
