Since it's inception in 2017, APSCo Australia’s Recruitment Professional Certification Program has delivered a self-managed, knowledge-based Certification program that empowers consultants to have confidence in their understanding of the complex elements of compliance when managing talent and clients.

The Certification Program has been designed to inform and update recruiters throughout their career, from new talent entering the profession through to the more seasoned recruiter - equipping them with the compliance knowledge and support to significantly drive their conversations with clients and candidates to achieve best practice processes to support commercial success.

The Certification Process

The Certified Recruitment Professional program is made up of 6 subject matter modules. Each module has it's own exam containing 10-15 multiple choice questions that require a 100% result to pass. All 6 modules will need to be completed within a six month period to gain Certification.

Subject matters included:

  • Privacy
  • Equal Opportunity and Anti-Discrimination
  • Reference Checking
  • Licensing and Regulation
  • Workplace Migration
  • The APSCo Code of Conduct

The first 3 modules in the program have now been released and are available for purchase.

The remaining 3 modules will be released in September 2020.

The full program is available for purchase now. Enrolled students will receive the Privacy, Equal Opportunity and Reference Checking modules upon enrolment and will be notified upon release of Licensing and Regulation, Workplace Migration and Code of Conduct modules.


What's new in 2020?

  • Learn at your pace with bite size portions. The traditional learning format of a single open book exam has now been replaced by 6 individual subject matter modules with their own module exams. You can enrol in one, or all of the modules and complete them at your own pace.

  • Learn in your style with our new modules catering for students who learn best by seeing, or reading and for those who want a more classroom style feel. Our new modules are delivered in an animated video format which can be completed with or without sound, based on your preference.

  • Learn your way with a brand new format of delivery that is supported across most platforms. Enabling you to study anywhere and any way that suits you. The video content and exam will both display seamlessly on your PC, Laptop, Tablet or Smart Phone.

  • Learn as you need with the 6 new modules that make up the Certification now being individually purchasable. This means you can enrol yourself, or all of your team and either invest in the program or just fill the knowledge gaps as they arise.

  • Learn and go. New module content is supported by notifications to all enrolled students upon any change to the module. This means your Certificate will never expire and there are no renewals required. Simply complete the module and if anything changes, we will let you know.

  • Learn and grow with more to come. In an ever changing and evolving environment, APSCo is committed to growing our learning facilities in 2021 and beyond to include further study and development options to support our Recruitment Professionals in managing their career pathways.
