Icra Certification Program


ICRA is now offering certification based upon written exams (cognitive assessments) in addition to their Performance Assessments, as part of a new “Comprehensive Certification Program.”

ICRA will recognize (grandfather in) your certifications

Use your certifications from other certifying organizations (ACAC, IICRC, RIA, etc.) towards your ICRA certification. ICRA will recognize any current certification, as well as any expired certification, provided that certification is no more than 5 years old, and is included in the list below.

ICRA will accept a copy of your certificate or ID card as a basis for issuing you an equivalent ICRA certification. No need to take another class or exam.
