Kentucky IDP State Coordinator
Intern Development Program (IDP) is a requirement in Kentucky to obtain an Architecture License.
When to Start IDP:

But you must register first with NCARB! Registration is free! Register
IDP Streamline, launching in June, eliminates NCARB’s requirement for elective hours - though you are still responsible for any additional requirements established in your jurisdiction. To assist with tranitioning any hours accumulated in the current 17 experience areas to the six new experience areas, NCARB has released the IDP Experience Caluculator.
How to get more information:
This page links to resources that will provide more information about IDP and lists of Coordinators who are available to assist you with any questions or concerns about your IDP process. Feel free to contact anyone you may know on any list.
