You may already have suitable qualifications, such as in the fields of Occupational Therapy, Building Surveying, Drafting, Architecture, or Social Science, etc. as a solid foundation for pursuing a professional career path as an Access Consultant.
If this is the case and
- you are a Certificate IV in Access Consulting graduate, you may be eligible to apply for the base entry level as an Associate class of member, participate in our Continuing Professional Development Program for two years and then upgrade to Accredited status after successfully passing the Accreditation Assessment Test.
- you are not a Certificate IV in Access Consulting graduate but joined as a ACAA Associate member prior to 2012, have participated in the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Program for three years and successfully passed the Accreditation Assessment Test, then you may also be eligible to upgrade to Accredited status.
Associate applicants are required to have successfully completed the nationally recognised qualification ‘Certificate IV in Access Consulting’ (or provide evidence of recognised prior learning (RPL) for the units of competency related to the Certificate IV in Access Consulting as determined via the appropriate nationally recognised RPL process).
Some of our Accredited Members offer a mentoring program to help Associates or even Affiliate Members attain Accredited Membership.
