The ICA Certification Program

The first Internationally developed and recognized practitioner certification program in the world was developed by an international committee of professionals and academics over a span of more than 4 years. Advanced and Practitioner level certification was introduced in 2004 at the ICA International Conference in Calgary and applicants have been recognizing the value of accreditation ever since. 

Certification Applicants Name


Those receiving certification as ICBCP or ICACP must re-certify every three years. To do so they must also be members in good standing at the time of application. To re-certify the applicant must submit an updated log book to the Certification Committee. The log book must clearly indicate three new proofs of continued competency and evidence of those three accomplishments must also be provided. A Competency Recertification Application must also be submitted.

The three proofs can take many forms. Articles written, presentations/classes given, surveys or assessments conducted, committees participated in, plans reviewed or degrees or certifications attained in related fields. These proofs, or accomplishments, must have all occurred during the current certification/recertification cycle. The date of required recertification is December 31st of the third year AFTER the year of original certification or recertification. If you were certified in 2001 then the recertification would be due no later than December 31st of 2004. This way you get a full three years of certification beyond the year in which you were certified.
