The Association of Computer Professionals (ACP) is an independent, professional examining body, set up in 1984, its Council Members working in both the education and commercial sectors of the computer industry. The Association's principal aim is to set and maintain standards of education, which reflect the constantly changing requirements of the computer industry, both in the United Kingdom and overseas. This is achieved through the provision of course syllabuses and examinations to our carefully vetted training centres around the world, which in turn provide the expert tuition.
ACP aims to raise the standards for everyone involved in the IT industry. Our members regularly write to tell us of their progress. Every year, many obtain Master's degrees, several are now engaged on PhD studies; one has been working for some time as an associate professor. Exciting opportunities are available to those who are appropriately qualified, as is demonstrated by the success of so many ACP members who have found permanent, rewarding employment in multinational companies, government departments and universities around the globe.
Rapid technological growth has placed increased demands on IT professionals. We shall ensure that we continue to accredit our qualifications and review our syllabuses regularly, to keep pace with the new job opportunities, which are constantly emerging.
Whilst setting our sights on the highest levels of academic and professional achievement, we strive to make training accessible to anyone who wishes to embark on a career in IT. Our entry criteria are flexible and realistic, allowing entry at Certificate level to those with no previous computing experience.
We hope you will find this website useful and informative but please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
