ITCP (SA) Benefits

of a professional designation & membership

Most specializations and industries have a professional body, normally an association or institute, which people with the appropriate background, experience or qualifications can join. What can you gain by joining such a body? Here are some of the potential benefits that membership can offer.

Professional Recognition

ICITP® has an assessment process that applicants must pass before they are granted membership. This means that, once you have demonstrated that you have the requisite experience, qualifications and skills, you may join the institution and add the appropriate letters to your CV and business card. Membership shows that you have reached a certain level of expertise in your profession, and adds to your credibility. 

Independent Verification

This means you have been independently verified by ICITP® as competent practitioner of the Industry, who is committed to personal, career and professional development. This independent verification is accompanied by a #Practise Number, which can be used to confirm membership and build trust with the public and various stakeholders.
