話說廿幾年前我係Monash University修讀 School of Computing 既 Bachelor of Computing (info. sys.)時已經認識Australian Computer Society (ACS)呢個組織。因為剛完成學位，回港後apply membership被classified 做AACS (Associated grade). 閑時我會update 類似PMI 既PDU, 後來多佐個PCP 既 credential同Full member.
而因為當年如果想apply skill immigrate 既 criteria係需要我地回港後最少有一年相關工作經驗至可以apply, 而因為程種種原因，我上灣仔High Commission買佐套application form就無再follow up, 而ACS membership 最後雖然係轉佐做full member, 但最後都比我棄會。
我自己雖然已經係over age, 唔可以用 Skill Immigrate 呢個subclass, 但都可以share一下, 因為好多時refer去skill shortage list時, ICT 工種做Endorsement都係會經ACS, 所以呢部份格外重要.
咁我近日學人預備BNO 5+1 (ACS同BCS好似係互相認證的)時去reinstate個membership時發現被ACS由full member degrade佐去AACS, 所以就同membership service做clarification. 原因就因為ACS而家係跟AQF玩法, 所以要做過晒vetting, 而呢個vetting fee就要AUD$349. 經幾個email clarifications, 最後memberhship services同意wavied呢 AUD$349.
而我就玩佐好幾小時既effort去預備下面既材料Applying for Certification offline – ACS information sheet
