If you want to age in the fermenter (bulk aging), then yes, you will need to rack to secondary.
I personally give 3-4 weeks in primary, 1-2 weeks in secondary if used, then 2-4 months in the bottle. Frees up fermenters and allows the beer to still age.

Each batch will be better a d better as you learn more.
