When first employed you will be given simple assignments, such as to help complete presentation and working drawings (construction documents). As your skills develop, you will be given responsibility to fully prepare working drawings for certain details or for selected portions of the project. Later your work will include experience in all phases of design, as well as construction administration.

IDP is available in all jurisdictions in the USA, and will ultimately be offered by all architectural offices. In considering your first employment opportunity, you should inquire as to the availability of IDP in each interview situation you have.

You need experience in all three of these areas to satisfy your IDP requirements.This comprehensive experience is not easily obtained in three short years of internship, so take advantage of all areas offered to you at your place of employment. You and your future employer will need to work together to be sure you are exposed to the maximum range of office and project experiences, so don't sweat it too much for being asked about doing CD' they are the true essence of good design.

Take a look at the IDP from the NCARB website. They will send you a guideline booklet on request.
