Does teaching count towards AXP hours?

samuelhill

I am a M. Arch candidate, and am independently instructing an AutoCAD course. Does this count as AXP hours? In what category? Thank you very much.

NCARB spells out the categories and what can be applied to them very clearly on their website and the AXP/ ARE guide.

The reason I asked here is because it is not specifically addressed in NCARB's website. I have heard from licensed professionals that it can count, and I wanted to hear the community's opinion on the matter. But it does not seem like the community has much to offer.

Look under Experience Setting O. Does not appear that teaching drafting counts under "DESIGN OR CONSTRUCTION RELATED EMPLOYMENT"

So, if you're teaching architectural design, or construction-related courses...

This is an instance where NCARB's rules have changed, so it makes sense that you're hearing something different from already-licensed people than you're finding in the AXP guidelines.  Years ago there was a certain amount of experience that was allowed to be earned in the specific experience category of full-time teaching in an NAAB-accredited architecture school's degree programs.  (Instructing one AutoCAD course wouldn't have counted even then, because you had to be employed in teaching more than 20 hours a week.)

Teaching is not currently an AXP experience setting.  In "the old days" there were many different settings and categories.  These days there's just "Category A" for working in an architecture firm, and "Category O" for everything else. 

There are still certain tasks that are allowed to be earned in any "Category O" setting, which you might conceivably be able to earn while teaching - for instance if you were to attend a building tour as part of class trip, or work on a construction project that's part of the curriculum, or go to a seminar or film series that's been approved for AIA learning units, or something like that.  But there's no longer a way to just count teaching hours toward AXP.

Better yet, how can anyone teach architecture at a university level without being licensed first?Would a doctor without board certification be permitted to teach at a medical school?

Good lord.  What a bunch of a-hole answers.
