Mandatory Continuing Education Requirements

Interns may earn IDP supplemental experience hours by completing approved AIA continuing education programs. 1 AIA LU is equal to 1 IDP supplemental experience hour. When submitting to NCARB, Learning Units must be documented on the intern’s AIA transcript. Any intern in IDP can request a free AIA transcript.
The AIA will have forms pre-populated with seminar information, and pre-approved by the California Architectural Board, for attendees licensed in California or Texas who need to submit proof of earning ADA credit for licensure. These forms will be available with the handouts for each course, which you can download from the individual course descriptions in the Program Search.
