Introducing the ICI's


Be rewarded






The new ICI Employer Recognition Program provides a means for employers who invest in staff development to be recognised nationally.

Encouraging employers across Australia to raise professional standards, the Program is the first ever civil industry specific recognition system.

Program Benefits:

  • Be branded as a business committed to raising professional standards in the industry
  • Showcase yourself as an employer of choice to current and future staff
  • Partner Levels allow you to rise through the Program over time
  • A national standard and brand
  • Suits employers of all sizes

There is no cost to Employers participating in the Program



Levels of Partnership

Entering the Program is optional, and free:

There are three Partner levels an employer can attain based on 3 criteria - courses, Membership and Gradings.

Criteria Elite Partner Premier Partner Partner

% of CIMs with two or more courses purchased each year >15 >10 >5
