Take your ICT Career to the Next Level: CIPS offering access to a world-class online education program


CIPS, in partnership with our sister organization the Australian Computer Society (ACS), is providing a great opportunity for a selected group of CIPS members to gain access to a world-class online education program. The ACS Computer Professional Education Program (CPEP) is an online postgraduate level ICT program. The curriculum is structured around the Skills Framework for the Information Age, the world’s most popular ICT skills framework used by thousands of organizations and adopted as the skills framework by the Australian, New Zealand, and United Kingdom governments.

This IP3 ( accredited program is a pathway to becoming an internationally recognized IT professional. Working with peers from across the globe, you will gain experience in developing risk management plans for projects, study compliance and regulatory requirements governing IT, gain knowledge of various technical specialisations and their application in the operational environment. Through this program you will also develop the ability to provide advice on project scoping and options for operational improvement. The program prepares you to effectively work at a SFIA Level 5 autonomy, responsibility and influence (see job categories mapped to SFIA).

Four reasons why you should consider applying for the CPEP?
