The Australian Register of Professional Career Development Practitioners (the Register) is the single national point of reference for ensuring and promoting professional career development practitioners across the whole industry in Australia and is a further step in the professionalisation of the industry.

CICA, as the National Peak Body, is responsible for developing and promulgating the Professional Standards for Australian Career Development Practitioners and leads the industry to ensure a commonly understood appropriate standard of education, training and continuing professional development for career development practitioners is maintained.

Individuals wishing to apply to join the Register will require a CICA endorsed Graduate Certificate in Career Development or higher, or an equivalent career development specific qualification, and be a Professional Member of a CICA Member Association.

Equivalent career development specific qualifications refer to completed qualifications prior to the implementation of the Professional Standards for Australian Career Development Practitioners and CICA Program Endorsement.

All current and graduates of CICA endorsed programs including those previously endorsed will be eligible to meet the requirements to join the Register.
