Free IDP Webinar: May 13th: 12-1pm
IDP Webinar 2014

Let's get personal; when was the last time you had to go through the intern process?  Was Bush [41] still in office or was it Bush [43]?


According to Michigan's Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, 1992 was the first year all new applicants needed a "NCARB blue cover council record".  How might IDP (Intern Development Program) have changed since then?  Well, quite a bit.


For those more senior in our profession, you may not have had to go through the Intern Development Process.  For those of us post 1992, it has changed so much, even since I started a record in 2007.


Join us for a 1 hour webinar to put us on the right track when it comes to IDP.  Our presentation will cover the basics of reporting, what an employer needs to know, and of course, how to get through it all unscathed by "gotcha" rules.  We will even cover NCARB resources available FREE online.


Please register for us to send resources ahead of time.


Any other IDP questions?
