Representing quality private education
providers in Australia

The ACPET Industry Certification Program (AICP), a 360° peer review process, has been established to provide ACPET members with the opportunity to be recognised for their student centric educational quality; ethical practices and behaviours; continuous improvement culture and professional student services; that go far beyond the realms of regulatory outcomes and measures.

APCET prides itself on delivering a service that is:

Industry Certification is a 360° peer review process that utilises independent sources to remove all conflicts of interest. Independence ensures the rigor of the process is well governed and natural justice principles apply equally to all members.

Through delegation from the National Board, Industry Certification is assessed and granted by an Independent Review Panel. The panel is made up of individuals who are nationally held in high regard and recognised for their exemplary achievements for the sector.

ACPET is the independent tertiary sectors peak association with the member’s interests at the forefront and students welfare at the centre of what we do. 

ACPET Industry Certified Members go through an independent peer review process, providing supporting information to back up their claims that they are fit for purpose as an educational organisation, which is validated by students, graduates, employers, staff and business partners.

ACPET Industry Certified Members are endorsed by their industry peers as being:

  • highly ethical in educational governance practices and behaviours;
  • quality educational providers and leaders in their technical field;
  • an employer of choice by professional teachers and assessors; 
  • preferred by employers as a workforce development strategy to meet their ongoing skilling requirements; and. 
  • the choice by students for quality education and industry linkages.
