An individual must be an ACS member before applying for certification. You can apply for ACS membership and certification at the same time with this application. As an ACS member you commit to a Code of Ethics, a Code of Professional Practice and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Your ACS membership provides you with the resources to not only fulfil these obligations but to access the largest network of ICT professionals in Australia, information and advice to keep your knowledge current and products and services that will help you keep your skills up to date and relevant. These are technology agnostic certifications recognising transferable skills and competencies and to become a Certified Professional or a Certified Technologist, you will need to undergo a formal Certification Assessment. This assessment will analyse your skills and competencies as demonstrated by your education and experience. This is a competency certification, so there are no exams or study required. This is an easy process and our leading assessment processors and assessors are here to help you. If you are already an ACS member and want to show the world your commitment to the ICT profession? You can apply using the Certification Only application form.
