ACS Professional Standards Scheme

Yohan

WELCOME TO THE NEW ACS PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS SCHEME –STRENGTHENING THE ICT PROFESSION

It’s an exciting step forward for the ICT profession, elevating the stature of CP members and providing a range of benefits. What this means:

  • All CP members now have professional recognition from Australian federal, state and territory governments
  • ACS has obtained approval for a redesigned Professional Standards Scheme to include all CP members
  • CP members now need to demonstrate ongoing compliance with professional standards

BECOME A CP

How the PS Scheme works:

Federal, state and territory governments collectively appoint a statutory body, the Professional Standards Council (PSC), who regulates the ACS, ensuring we establish and uphold professional frameworks and standards for all CP members. The ACS in turn oversees CP members, assessing qualifications and experience, and ensuring all continue to comply with a code of ethics, maintain CPD records, and carry insurances for consumer protection.

The ACS PS Scheme caps liability for ICT professional services performed for clients and customers by practitioners on an independent basis, or on behalf of an employer. For CP members, liability is limited to AUD$2.0 million (although a member may apply for a higher cap should this be problematic). ACS Certified Professionals (CPs) who meet the criteria and hold the requisite insurances are entitled to this protection.
