ICA Membership FAQs

We have four different levels of individual membership. Whether you are just starting out in your career, have gained an ICA professional qualification or are an experienced practitioner, there is a level appropriate for you. Find out more here.

Membership of ICA is compulsory for anybody wishing to study towards an ICA certification or qualification.

Please note: If you started your course post July 2016, you will have gained Affiliate Membership and this will be automatically upgraded when you have completed your course, to the appropriate level.

If you started your course before July 2016 you will be required to apply for the next level of membership.

Once you have received your exam results, you will automatically be upgraded to the membership level you are entitled to, at no cost. You will then be invoiced on your renewal date for the new membership level.

If you have previously completed an ICA qualification, please refer to the membership pages which will indicate which level of membership you are entitled to.
