Logbook - CERB

The Canadian Experience Record Book (CERB) is meant to provide Interns with a tool to record their architectural experience and to enable the Regulatory Organizations of Architecture in Canada (ROAC) jurisdiction to verify and assess the nature and breadth of this experience.

Interns are responsible for maintaining a record of architectural experience in the CERB and credit will only be granted for experience gained while enrolled as an Intern in the IAP. The CERB serves several purposes for Interns:
 
  • To identify areas where architectural experience is being gained and areas where deficiencies exist.
  • As a tool in discussions with supervisors to ensure IAs are assigned to suitable work experience for each of the categories.

Submitting Your CERB
All architectural experience must be recorded in the CERB and signed by the Supervising Architect and Mentor. Interns are required to submit the CERB to their ROAC jurisdiction for review upon completion of 900-1000 hours or six months of architectural experience or following a change of employment, and within 8 weeks of the date of the last entry.
We remind you that effective July 1, 2020, the AAA in conjunction with all other provincial regulators, launched the 4th edition of the Internship in Architecture Program (IAP) program manual.
You are advised to start logging in the 4th edition’s new logbook as soon as possible, as the old logbook (3rd edition) will not be accepted after June 20, 2022. Only the 4th edition logbooks will be accepted.
Please refer to the 4th edition IAP Manual for detailed descriptions of the 4th Edition CERB categories.
