Interns who have already registered as an IA, and who have begun logging hours will continue to follow the pre-July 1, 2020 IAP Manual
. This national document outlines and explains the standards of the IAP. A PDF version of the manual is also available in French
at this time.
Provincial-specific requirements to the IAP are found in Appendix B
of the IAP Manual. These requirements include program specifics such as timelines for the recording and submission of logbooks, and currency of knowledge.
To successfully complete the IAP, Interns must achieve:
- 3,720 hours (minimum two calendar years*) of approved work experience logged under the direct supervision of their supervisor (employer) and mentor**,
- The successful completion of the ExAC or NCARB examination,
- A successful interview with the AAA Registration Committee, and
- Succesful completion of the Architects Act course as part of licensure requirements.
