About us

ICA was founded in 2010 to provide consulting services to credentialing organizations that offer various assessment programs including licensure, certifications, and certificates. ICA’s mission and passion are encapsulated in these statements:

We connect and collaborate with our customers to provide innovative credentialing services and solutions throughout the world.

We foster relationships in a supportive environment to drive results and exceed expectations.

ICA seeks to ensure that credentialing organizations consider the full scope of their certification program, particularly regarding quality. Decisions made in the test development process often affects marketing, operations, and administration, and for an organization to be successful, these potential effects must be considered and addressed throughout the process. ICA consultants bring many years of combined experience in managing credentialing programs and applying technical methods to produce sound psychometric and test development products and services. It is this broad and in-depth experience in certification management that allows ICA to produce high quality work for our clients.

ICA’s founders, who were certification managers in their previous roles, provide expertise and experience that many of our competitors do not possess. ICA staff sit in leadership roles for several certification industry associations, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Association of Test Publishers (ATP), Certification Network Group (CNG), and Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE).
