Intern Development Program and AIA Continuing Education

Interns may earn IDP Supplemental Experience hours by completing approved AIA Continuing Education programs: one (1) AIA CEU/LU is equal to one (1) IDP experience hour. When submitting hours to NCARB, LU’s must be documented on the intern’s AIA Transcript.

Learn more about AIA support of IDP and Interns.

Not an AIA member? Interns enrolled in IDP can request a free AIA Transcript for one year. Learn more.

View your AIA Transcript

Members can sign into AIA CES Discovery to view your AIA Transcript. Instructions on submitting the transcript to NCARB are listed below under “How it Works.”

How It Works



1. Attend an AIA approved continuing education course or event.

AIA Components and AIA CES registered providers sponsor continuing education events. When Associate members and Intern Transcript users attend an event they should follow the AIA registered architects’ lead by signing in with their name and AIA member number. Event providers are responsible for submitting the attendance information to AIA, which maintains CES records. Course providers are given ten (10) days from the date of the course to report all attendance. Completed course LU’s will then appear on AIA transcripts.

2. Download an AIA transcript.

Download a copy of your AIA transcript by signing into the AIA CES Discovery website at any time. Print a PDF copy of the transcript for the date range of the courses completed.

3. Report hours through your NCARB Record.

IDP record holders report course work through your My NCARB record by clicking the “IDP” tab and selecting “Experience Reports.” Click “+ New Experience Report” to create a new Supplemental Experience report. A PDF of the AIA transcript documenting completion of AIA-approved courses must be uploaded as proof of completion for the AIA Continuing Education Supplemental Experience. Multiple courses may be submitted via one experience report as long as they each appear on the transcript that is uploaded.
