The Emerging Professional's Companion
The Emerging Professional's Companion is a online resource developed by the AIA and NCARB primarily for use by interns in gaining IDP credit. The Companion can also be used by educators, young architects, AIA components, and firms in a variety of ways to enhance or create new learning opportunities.
ARE ForumARE Forum is a resource for the learning community on the web with active users comprised of both practitioners in architecture and academics involved in research and teaching.
Periodically, members step forward to help interns by conducting ARE Study Sessions. Look here for the latest series.

The materials are available to Associate AIA members and can be checked out of the office for a period of 14 days.

Attention architectural interns, sponsors, advisors and mentors! Effective May 15, 2008, all candidates applying to take the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE) will be required to establish a record with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB).
Wisconsin applicants do not necessarily need to complete NCARB's Intern Development Program (IDP) or meet its education requirements, but you must establish a NCARB record and obtain a record number before the Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing can authorize you to start taking the exam.
