Intern Development Program
Architecture Intern Development Program
The Intern Development Program (IDP) is a comprehensive training program created to ensure that interns in the architecture profession gain the knowledge and skills required for the independent practice of architecture. The IDP was created jointly in the 1970s by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and is administered by NCARB.
As a professional membership organization, the AIA supports the IDP through the coordinator program, the mentorship program, supplementary education activities, and the IDP Advisory Committee. All of the program requirements are outlined in the IDP Guidelines. Interns and supervisors should become familiar with the IDP Guidelines and the IDP Supervisor Guidelines.
Register for the NCARB IDP by completing the IDP Registration Form.
