The I-CAB Initiative team looks forward to assisting you and your organization down the path of continual improvement.
The current capabilities of I-CAB are a direct result of numerous individual contributors acting in the capacity of special advisors, board members, reviewers etc. these individuals provided a vast array of knowledge, skills and experiences specific to competencies relevant to specific industries and jurisdictions. Below are some of the individuals/organizations that have played a pivotal role.

I-CAB's functional competency assessments are jurisdictionally and work environment specific assessments that are created with specific attention to the regulatory framework of that industry and jurisdiction to assess all four levels of functional competency, including recognition, comprehension, interpretation and application.
Assessment content is derived from regulatory and non-regulatory sources and undergoes several stages of review against the I-CAB assessment question standard prior to public release.
All assessments are accessible through an online, proctored interface and provide a reliable metric for the assessment of cumulative and individual competency specific to a job function and/or project.
In addition to its stated mission and goals, The I-CAB Initiative strives to ensure the ethical use of its Functional Competency Assessment & Development tools by ensuring that participants receive accurate, clear, and supportive information about the participation in, and the meaning of, the competency assessment process and its subsequent results.
This allows individuals to proceed confidently in the assessment process, knowing that the sole intention of the assessment results is to support the ongoing development of their competence. When used with contracted organizations, ethical guidelines ensure that the capabilities of an entire organization are not judged (i.e. prequalified) based on a comparison or ranking with peer organizations. Only the ability to assess, maintain and develop the competency of personnel is pertinent when participating personnel and a work scope are not yet known.
Ethical use also prevents the abuse of competency metrics. Abuse includes using assessment results as an individual’s or an organization’s absolute competency instead of being viewed as a valuable metric in an overall competency management process.
