The Australian Computer Society and Capital College
The Australian Computer Society is Australia’s assessing authority for skilled migration for the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector. It plays a key role working with the Australian Government to design and update the diploma and advanced diploma you will be studying with us. It is the peak authority for technology in Australia with 48,000 members, more than 44,500 training videos and over 600 industry events each year.
The ACS and Capital College share the view that standards are essential in Australia’s technology training industry. We are both advocates of students extending their knowledge beyond what our diplomas teach by learning modular microCredentials in niche tech areas, seeking industry certification in these, and adopting an attitude of life-long learning to keep knowledge and certifications current.
Capital College gifts membership in ACS to all our IT students. We want you to have access to its world-class resources, and get excited about where these can take you in an IT career. Here is just some of what you’ll receive after you start studying with us:
Learning Accelerator: New courses, prescribed learning journeys, vendor certification practice tests (e.g. for Cisco, Google or Amazon), certifications on completion and personalised recommendations for continual learning and skills development.
Digital library with 44,500 digital assets: Exclusive training videos, recorded webinars and insights from tech leaders.
ACS Career Platform: Career advice, job seeking content, profiles of working with specific organisations, and available opportunities with employers across the tech sector.
Networking and events: Over 600 events to help you network, find mentors and learn from peers. Plus a range of webinars and virtual events to learn from leaders.
ACS microCredentials are underpinned by the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). These microCredentials provide recognition and validation of your learning achievements against a defined set of SFIA skills and knowledge. ACS will issue you with a digital badge recognised by the ICT sector worldwide for every microCredential you earn. This is an effective way to validate, recognise and communicate your credentials for current advancement or future employment.
There’s no limit to the number of ACS microCredentials you can earn, as they are awarded at multiple levels of expertise for a range of topics such as:
- Cyber Security Governance
- Risk Management
- Security Testing
- Intrusion Detection
- Digital Forensics
- Vulnerability Assessment
