REMINDER!! At the end of this month, the current Intern Development Program (IDP) ends and the start of the new Architectural Experience Program (AXP) begins! AXP takes effect on Wednesday June 29, 2016, and will align with the new version of ARE 5.0 that will be released later this year.
NCARB has advised that all current reports for IDP should be submitted before this date. While all hours transfer one for one, the topics are being realigned and NCARB has stated it is best to finish and submit a report before the transition. With this being said, a lot of submissions will be occurring at this time so their program may be running slow, so plan your submission accordingly! (Supervisors will have time after this date to review and approve the submissions.)
If you haven't done so already, check out this IDP transition calculator from NCARB. Type in your current IDP hours in all 17 categories and see how your hours transfer to the new AXP in 6 categories. You may be closer to finishing your hours than you think!
See below the 6 new categories and their experience skills. You can also follow all AXP and ARE 5.0 updates on theNCARB Blog.
