An accredited member of Icon, ACR, will have been through a robust professional practice assessment process to demonstrate that they have, met the ‘proficient’ level of Icon’s Professional Standards. It is a professional qualification designed to be of an equivalent standard to other professions, including the chartered professions.
An ACR is required to maintain their professional practice on an ongoing basis. New ACR’s will use Section 4 of the application form, as the foundation for their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) records and plans.
Icon has a responsibility to review these CPD records through a regular Recall Process, continuing the peer review process, which is carried out at intervals throughout the accredited membership lifetime.
CPD provides a framework with which to measure ongoing development and plan professional direction. There are plenty of opportunities available through Icon to help an ACR develop.
