Application for Endorsement

CICA has developed Qualification Endorsement Policies and Procedures, and established a Qualification Endorsement Committee.

Higher education and training providers may apply to CICA for endorsement of the courses they deliver. Universities and Registered Training Organisations seeking endorsement are required to submit material relevant to their courses to CICA. Only courses endorsed by CICA will meet the Professional Standards.

The endorsement committee meets as required to assess applications received. Application fees for course endorsement and re-endorsement have recently been reviewed and have been set as at 1 July 2018.
