Work Setting E to Experience Setting S
Job: Assistant site coordinator at a construction company
Ethan has earned 800 hours in work setting E. Under the current program, he can earn a maximum of 936 hours in categories C and D. When IDP 2.0 is implemented, Ethan’s current experience will fall under experience setting S. The 800 hours he has earned so far will be rolled over into experience setting S where he can now earn a maximum of 930 hours in any relevant experience area.
In IDP 2.0, the core hours earned through supplemental experience are subject to the limitations associated with each opportunity—these hours are separate from the 1,860 elective hours an intern can earn through supplemental experience.
Work Setting F and Supplementary Education to Experience Setting S
Full-time teaching or research in a NAAB-accredited or CACB-accredited professional degree program. Work setting F is defined in the IDP Guidelines.
