Career StagesIntern Development Program
Once licensed, many young architects may find it challenging to acquire continuing education in their areas of professional interest. The EPC can be a powerful tool in encouraging lifelong learning and research among architects. Architects may use EPC exercises to stimulate research activities either independently or in teams. AIA Continuing Education credit is earned by using the self-report form for architects and designating that time as research.

Get Credit for Mentoring!
Architects who work with interns as they complete the Companion exercises and scenarios will find that they will gain knowledge that will enhance their own practice. The AIA encourages IDP Supervisors and IDP mentors to self-report the time spent preparing for a meeting with an intern and/or the time in the spent meeting with the intern as a continuing education opportunity. The architect will be required to submit learning objectives to show the areas of their practice that were enriched by this experience.
