Associate membership is a mark of achievement that recognises your commitment to professionalism through studying. You can progress to Associate membership having successfully completed an ICA Advanced Certificate.


As an Associate member you will also sign up and adhere to ICA’s Code of Conduct and complete a mandatory 35 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) each year.

You will be eligible to use the designation AICA and will be able to apply for annual certification of your CPD, which is a powerful way to demonstrate your commitment to competence to both your employer and your regulator. There will be a small fee of £10 per annum for this process.
