ARCS CERTIFICATION FOR ALL DISCIPLINES
Recent research conducted amongst our members and in consultation with senior members in management positions, has identified the need for Certification. Therefore, members of ARCS Australia Ltd are now able to gain recognition for their training and experience through a Certification process.
Certification of ARCS Australia Members:
The certification of ARCS members is the process for recognising members who have attained a certain professional standard at an educational and/or practice area level. ARCS certification will not be based on job role.
The ARCS Professional Standard
ARCS members seeking certification will be assessed against the following four criteria:
- Relevant educational background
- Underpinning knowledge
- Appropriate experience in the workplace &
- Commitment to continuing professional development (CPD) and the ARCS Australia Code of Conduct
ARCS member seeking certification will be able to select from a number of pathways through which they will be able to demonstrate to the ARCS Board they have achieved the required professional standard. Each pathway will be distinguished by the method the member chooses to have their underpinning knowledge assessed.
This assessment can involve one of the following:
- The attendance of all required courses on the ARCS professional development curriculum and the attainment of the corresponding certificates of completion (Professional Development Pathway)
- The completion of an ARCS approved international accreditation exam (Accreditation Pathway)
- The completion of a sanctioned post graduate qualification (Postgraduate Pathway)
The ARCS Board will be able to recognise an ARCS member who meets the required professional standard as either an:
- ARCS Certified Members (ACM)
- ARCS Certified Professional Members (ACPM)
- ARCS Certified Fellow (ACF)
