ACS accreditation is awarded to an institution and its programs after a rigorous evaluation of their capacity to produce graduates who have the knowledge and skills required of an ICT professional.
These qualifications are recognised in Australia by employers and for ACS certification and skills assessment for migration purposes. These qualifications are also recognised internationally by signatories of the Seoul Accord.
