The IDP Six Month Rule is less than three weeks away! Interns, open your NCARB record now to get extra time to report hours.
The Six-Month Rule requires interns to submit their training units in reporting periods of no longer than six months and within two months of completion of each reporting period. The rule will go into effect on 1 July 2009 for interns who begin an NCARB Record on or after that date and 1 July 2010 for all interns regardless of application date. All training unit reports must be submitted electronically through NCARB’s electronic Experience Verification Reporting (e-EVR) system.
The Six-Month Rule only applies to interns. It does not apply to registered architects that must document past experience for NCARB certification.
