Frequently Asked Questions


ICRS Competency Framework

Our Competency Framework sits at the heart of the Institute and your membership application.

Developed collaboratively by CRS professionals, including corporate specialists, academics and consultants, it explains what you need to be effective, wherever you are in your career.

If you're applying for Associate (AICRS) or Member (MICRS) you need to show how your skills and experiences relate to the Competency Framework.

Your application will then be evaluated by one of our volunteer assessors. These are  qualified MICRS professionals all of whom are formally trained assessors.
