IDP Boot Camp Saturday, April 12 1:30-3pm Edwin F. Jarboe, AIA IDP Auxiliary Coordinator, BRR Architecture Tina Reames, AIA IDP State Coordinator, New Mexico
IDP Boot Camp IDP Bootcamp Emerging Professionals is a Registered Provider with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System (CES). Credit earned on completion of this program will be reported to CES Records for AIA members. Certificates of completion for non-AIA members are available on request. This program is registered with the AIA/CES for continuing professional education. As such, it does not include content that may be deemed or construed to be an approval or endorsement by the AIA of any material of construction or any method or manner of handling, using, distributing, or dealing in any material or product. Questions related to specific materials, methods, and services will be addressed at the conclusion of this presentation.
IDP Boot Camp Learning Objectives Understand and explain the regulatory requirements necessary in the pathway to licensure. Explain how to obtain, maintain and retrieve your NCARB Council Record—this includes knowing how to properly log and record training units, fill out forms and sign off on forms. Using resources and guidelines taught in the workshop, clarify a wide range of FAQs and identify the proper person or organization to contact for answers to specific scenario based questions.
IDP Boot Camp What is IDP? “IDP is a profession-wide, comprehensive program that contributes to the development of competent architects who can provide exemplary architectural services.” http://www.ncarb.org/IDP/overview.html
IDP Boot Camp Objectives of IDP acquire basic knowledge and skills 1.Define areas of architectural practice in which interns should acquire basic knowledge and skills; 2.Encourage additional training 2.Encourage additional training in the broad aspects of architectural practice; 3.Provide the highest quality information and advice 3.Provide the highest quality information and advice about educational, internship and professional issues and opportunities; 4.Provide a uniform system 4.Provide a uniform system for documentation and periodic assessment of internship activity; and 5.Provide greater access to educational opportunities 5.Provide greater access to educational opportunities designed to enrich training.
IDP Boot Camp Brief History May 1919 - At an American Institute of Architects convention in Nashville, Tennessee, 15 architects from 13 states came together to form the organization that would soon become the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. Today, NCARB members are the architectural registration boards of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and three U.S. territories (Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands). Each registration board has state-appointed public and professional members as well as an administrator. Two equally important responsibilities comprise the mission of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards: to work together as a council of member boards to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the public and to assist member boards in carrying out their duties.
IDP Boot Camp Brief History 1897 – Illinois becomes first state to pass laws regulating practice of architecture 1919 – NCARB created 1969 – NCARB established the title “Intern Architect” and begins development of an internship program 1972 – A national committee is established by AIA and NCARB (IDP Coordinating Committee) 1976 – Intern-Architect Development Program (IDP) begins as a pilot program in Colorado, New Jersey and Texas 2007 – IDPCC renamed IDPAC
IDP Boot Camp What is Required for Registration? What are the 3 ‘E’s’ needed to become licensed architect? Education Experience Examination The 3 E’s
IDP Boot Camp The Collaterals What groups make up the “collateral” organizations? AIA AIAS ACSA NAAB NCARB
IDP Boot Camp Length of IDP How many training units (TUs) are required to complete IDP? 700 Training Units = 5,600 hours (1 TU = 8 hours) Equivalent to 2 years, 10 months
IDP Boot Camp Education Evaluation Services for Architects What is the Education Evaluation Services for Architects (EESA) used for? To evaluate degrees in the field of architecture conferred by an academic institution outside of the U.S. and Canada.
IDP Boot Camp Education Most state boards require a professional degree from an NAAB-accredited program –B.Arch –M.Arch –D.Arch EESA equivalent also accepted Degree Requirements
IDP Boot Camp Education Training while in school can begin: –After completion of the 3rd year in a 5-year NAAB-accredited B.Arch program Minimum 96 semester credit hours after 3 rd year, of which no more than 60 can be general education 32 semester credit hours and 48 quarter credit hours = one year –After completion of the 3rd year in a 4-year pre-professional program (program which leads to direct entry into a 2 year M.Arch) –After completion of the 1st year in a NAAB-accredited M.Arch program (with an undergraduate degree in another discipline) Entry Points
