A primary objective of the Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners is to create professional standards for its members so that they gain recognition within the industry as qualified and experienced professionals who deal with claims. Consequently, membership is restricted to those who can demonstrate their suitability.

The ICCP recognises that claims professionals usually gain their knowledge through hands-on experience rather than academic qualifications. For this reason, an applicant’s membership level will be considered based on a combination of academic qualifications, membership of other industry institutes and experience in the workplace.

Our individual membership levels, including requirements and cost, are included below. If you don’t think that you meet the requirements you can also look at our alternative routes to membership via training.

Our Membership Levels

Associate (AICCP)

Associate membership is available to professionals who have already gained an appropriate professional qualification within the industry and have an interest in construction claims. Associates are encouraged to work towards obtaining full membership of the institute.

Associate members are encouraged to gain the necessary experience to attain full membership through continuing professional development.

Member (MICCP)

Membership of the institute is available to professionals who can demonstrate appropriate qualifications and experience to prepare, respond to or manage construction claims to a suitable professional standard.

Fellow (FICCP)

Fellowship is available to professionals within the industry who can demonstrate significant experience in the field of construction claims and have held senior positions that demanded an in-depth knowledge of claims.
