There are three types of ICI Membership:

The Civil Infrastructure Manager (CIM) - for Leading Hands, Engineers, Supervisors, Managers and Leaders.

Student CIM - on their way to being CIM. Currently studying for an ICI Approved Qualification at a recognised Australian tertiary institution with more than 50% study load.

Affiliate part of the broader community connected with the civil industry, but who cannot be CIMs


Contracts & Procurement Conference

The Civil Infrastracture Manager (CIM) is either:

A person with civil work experience who is supervising/managing another person or a number of people (even if briefly during their work day).


A graduate with an ICI Approved Qualification from a recognised Australian tertiary provider or an approved overseas education provider.



All CIMs first join as an Entrant, however the experienced CIMs can then
apply for a Grading Assessment immediately.
Find out what's right for you below!


Entrant (Worker or Graduate)

It is not just for engineers and the people in senior management, it is also for the supervisor and manager who now manages people due to their industry experience.

Achieve your goals and aspirations. See a new future for yourself. Grow your career. Be recognised! For new Leading Hands and supervisors, the Learning Program offers access to learning. Be a step ahead in your pursuit of a better role.

New and recent graduates build on the industry identified gaps graduates typically experience and are supported in your move from theory to practice. Employers will soon be looking for the graduates who are completing or have completed The Institute Learning Courses.



Middle and Senior Managers   

Stay current and demonstrate best practice capability in the technical management, people management and business operations skills against national industry standards. 

Whether you have a degree or years of industry experience or both, you can join The Institute and you can also immediately apply for your first Grading  assessment to the new industry standards today.






Managing Directors & CEO

You might find it hard to find time for the "blue sky thinking" that the pinnacle manager and leader needs.

The Institute offers specially tailored programs and discrete opportunities to engage with thought leadership, disruptive and innovative leaders, futurists, industry trend experts and others. It is also time for you to be recognised against the new industry standards!




         WHY YOU:                                                WHY THE INSTITUTE:





YOU, the civil students are the future supervisors, leaders and managers. We welcome you and encourage you to be part of the ICI learning community and mix with those who may well become your mentors and employers.

If you are a full or part time student (you must have a minimum of 50% study load) at a recognized Australian tertiary education institution doing an approved civil related qualification, you can join ICI and start your journey today.

In the interests of supporting the industry’s future workforce talent, your Student Membership is FREE.

Further, you can transition easily after graduation to become a CIM Member and build your career to take advantage of the CIM grades and gain recognition during your career.




The civil and infrastructure community relies on its strong ties with individuals who support the industry directly and indirectly.

We are keen to form an inclusive network of civil and infrastructure people including individuals who provide support services and businesses, and civil related academics, all of whom are critical to the sustainability of the industry.

If you are such an individual, we invite you to be part of The Institute community and network.





The Institute is the only Continual Professional Development Partner specific to the Civil Industry.
