The National Council of Architectural Registration Board's (NCARB) Architectural Experience Program (AXP), formerly the Intern Development Program (IDP), prepares you for a successful career in architecture.
These resources will help you make the transition to a licensed professional.

AIA continuing education
Earn AXP experience hours through AIA continuing education at your component, firm, or through AIAU. (1 AIA HSW Learning Unit or Continuing Education Unit equals 1 AXP experience hour. )
If you're not an AIA member, you can track continuing education with an AIA intern transcript for one year.
The Emerging Professionals Companion (EPC) program is no longer eligible for experience credit since IDP transitioned to AXP in 2016.
If you have questions or are still interested in a copy of the EPC PDF, please send us an email.
