Accreditation

Icon’s accreditation framework provides peer review recognition for the skills and experience of conservation professionals

Icon Accreditation is awarded by the Institute of Conservation and aligned to Icon's Professional Standards.

The Icon Accreditation framework has three components:

  • An assessment process for accrediting professional capability against explicit standards  
  • A system for ensuring maintenance and enhancement of professional capability through Continuing Professional Development
  • A means of removing ACR status from practitioners who fail to maintain a minimum standard of practice and ethics demonstrated through regular CPD returns.
