Submit for IDP Credit
Use the EPC to satisfy a portion of your IDP hour requirements. Earn up to 1,624 IDP hours through the EPC. Each activity is worth eight hours. By completing EPC activities, you can earn up to 40 core hours in each experience area.
Please note: Interns can earn a maximum of 600 core minimum hours through EPC with no more than 40 core hours earned in any one IDP experience area. If an intern has already completed the maximum allowable 40 core minimum hours in a given experience area through any combination of supplemental experience, then EPC activities completed in that area will be credited as elective hours.
Step by Step
Your IDP Supervisor or Mentor will receive an email prompting him/her to certify your hours of EPC completion. Please remember to keep digital documentation (PDF) of completed core activities for three years following completion, should NCARB audit your file.
*The AIA provides interns in IDP a free temporary AIA number and AIA Transcript to track supplemental experience for IDP credit. Supplemental experience can also be gained through AIA Continuing Education courses. Request a free temporary AIA number at www.aia.org/FreeTranscriptsforInterns.
