 Why ICI is For You

Our Purpose - Supporting People’s Futures

Our industry has identified a critical need for a structured civil-specific career progression program for supervisors, managers and leaders to provide recognised standards and also strengthen and sustain the industry.

The attraction and retention of people to the industry, and the inclusion and support of current students aspiring to work in the sector, is imperative.

The Institute of Civil Infrastructure (ICI) is the body that supports this need. ICI is designed by the industry for the industry.

ICI is for individuals. It’s for any civil people supervising or managing people. It’s for CEO’s, engineers and leading hands.


The ICI Learning Program

What is it?

The ICI Learning Program supports individuals to set goals and pursue career aspirations. The ICI Learning Program is a continuing professional development (CPD) program that supports the career progression of Civil Infrastructure Managers (CIM).

It provides a means to continually learn about technical, people and business management in the civil industry. It provides flexibility to follow personal interests, with the confidence that what is provided is truly relevant to the civil industry.
