Our highest level of membership is for holders of an ICA Professional Postgraduate Diploma and those who have been Professional Members for five consecutive years and have asked for an upgrade. Fellowship is also open to senior practitioners with strategic experience who have qualified via our experiential route. Click here to find out more about how to apply.


Being a Fellow of the ICA is a mark of prestige. It demonstrates a high level of competence and achievement and represents your ongoing dedication to professionalism. To maintain this status, you must sign up and adhere to the Code of Conduct and complete a further 35 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) each year, as you are a role model for your industry.

You will be eligible to use the designation FICA and will be able to apply for annual certification of your CPD free of charge. There is an expectation that you, as a Fellow, will add value to the growing ICA community. This can be done in a variety of ways such as contributing to inCOMPLIANCE ®, designing content for the CPD Centre, serving on an ICA Branch committee or becoming an examiner. Of course we are always open to ideas and suggestions that play to your individual personal strengths that our community would benefit from. Contact us at membership@int-comp.org to arrange a discussion about how you would like to contribute.
