IDP 2.0: NCARB Certificate Applicants
IDP 2.0 will go into effect on 3 April 2012 for both interns and architects needing to document the IDP for NCARB certification.
IDP 2.0 includes a broader definition of an IDP supervisor and new experience settings, categories, and areas. Please review the new IDP 2.0 requirements and the rollover rules to understand how the change could affect your completion of the experience requirement. You will want to evaluate your individual circumstances and determine if it is best to document your completion of IDP before or after the rollover.
- If you have not documented IDP prior to 3 April 2012, you will need to satisfy the new requirements.
- If you have completed the IDP prior to 3 April 2012, IDP 2.0 will not affect you.
- All experience submitted prior to April 3 will roll over to IDP in accordance with the rules published in the IDP 2.0 Interns’ Rollover Guide.
- All experience is subject to review and evaluation by NCARB for compliance with the program. If NCARB determines that “submitted” or “approved” experience was invalid or was not earned in compliance with the program, then the individual will be required to complete the program requirements in compliance with IDP 2.0.
- Our online reporting system may be slowed by high volumes of use on or before the April 3 rollover, so please submit your hours well ahead of time.
- An alternative to the IDP is available and explained in the Handbook for Interns and Architects; however, some jurisdictions may not accept this alternative and may require formal IDP documentation for reciprocal licensure.
