Certified Professional (CP) is recognised by the International Professional Practice Partnership and the Australian Government as the benchmark for the ICT industry. To become a CP, you must demonstrate in-depth competency at Level 5 in at least one category of the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA), a universal measure for classifying ICT skills. For consultants & contractors, CP allows you to limit your liability in line with your professional indemnity insurance.
You can become recognised as a Certified Technologist (CT), which shows you are a reliable, disciplined ICT practitioner who adheres to a code of ethics and is serious about professional development. It provides a competitive edge in the Australian job market and entitles you to use the post-nominal MACS CT.
To become a CT, you need to provide evidence of your skills in applying and installing ICT. You also must complete 20 hours of professional development each year to maintain your qualification, this expands your skills and gives you a pathway to becoming a CP.
