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 you may be eligible to apply for the base entry level as an Associate class of member before upgrading after two years for Certificate IV in Access Consulting holders, three years if not for existing Associate members prior to 2012, having participated in the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Program and successfully passing the Accreditation Assessment Test.

Associate applications 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.
