SFIA Accredited Skills Assessor Workshop

In an environment of rapid technological change, the critical challenge for businesses and organisations is to attract and retain talent, with the capability/skills to meet future business needs. Using SFIA - the Skills Framework for the Information Age, the world’s most robust and widely used tech and digital skills definition framework – ACS offers the SFIA Accredited Skills Assessor Course. Working at both the individual and organisation levels, SFIA Accredited Skills Assessors provide high-value service, accurately validating the SFIA benchmarked skills of tech and digital professionals and the organisations for which they work. This one-day course is an extension of the established ACS Understanding SFIA course – a prerequisite for commencing ACS’ Skills Assessor Course.
