ICP is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of global leaders with expertise in prehospital and out-of-hospital standards of practice and education, assessment validation, curriculum development, and knowledge of EMS systems and education in other countries.

The ICP Board is assisted in its work by the ICP Advisory Board.The members of the Advisory Board are appointed to provide advice and guidance to the Trustees and assist the Trustees in implementing ICP activities.
