COVID-19 and ICE
Like many organizations, the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) is responding to the COVID-19 situation. ICE is maintaining normal business hours but the majority of our team is working remotely. We are taking advantage of technology to ensure that our work and customer service response is maintained at its highest levels. We acknowledge that our members are also facing challenges and we look forward to supporting the community throughout this time. Thank you for remaining engaged with ICE and offering your insight on how to weather this storm.
