How do I achieve a Combination Designation?
Candidates must pass exams and hold a current certification in the prerequisite categories listed below and meet applicable requirements for the corresponding designation.
Automatic Combination Designations
You will be granted Automatic Combination Designations once you pass all exams and prerequisites on your myICC account. Our systems will be able to track your progress and detect your exam and prerequisite achievements so that you will be automatically granted the combination for which you qualify. From there, you will also have the ability to print the Wall Certificate for your combination. Because of special requirements, not all certificates/designations apply.
You are still responsible for renewing your Combination Designations. If you choose not to renew your designation, the designation status on your account will no longer be viewable. Stay on top of keeping your designations renewed!
