Member Benefits

The recognition you deserve
Get independent recognition of your skills by becoming a Certified Professional (CP). The mark of CP is regarded by the Australian Government as the benchmark of professionalism in our industry. It classifies your professional certification according to the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA), a global measure of ICT expertise. As a CP, employers are reassured that you have the right skills for the job, wherever in the world your career takes you. 
 
Gain a competitive edge
Being a certified member of the ACS enhances your credentials to an employer. It demonstrates through undertaking professional development you are committed to being up-to-date with recent advances in ICT.  
 
Fast-track your career
Our professional development courses teach you invaluable, real-world skills to keep up with our rapidly changing industry and further your career.

You can also enrol in our Virtual College, Australia’s most practical ICT qualification, which teaches you how to use technology to improve business performance in an interactive virtual classroom.
