APAC maintains a publicly available list of all current APAC-accredited education providers and programs of study on its website. The current list of APAC-accredited programs of study identifies the current accreditation status and will be amended to reflect any changes in the accreditation status of programs of study. APAC also publishes on its website a summary of the outcomes of each cycle accreditation assessment it conducts, and of new programs in out-of-cycle assessments. The National Board publishes all approved education providers and programs of study on its website as required under Section 49(5) of the National Law.
Using APAC accreditation for promoting APAC-accredited programs outside of Australia
Education providers are to take care when using APAC accreditation to promote APAC-accredited programs outside of Australia, particularly in relation to the requirements to practise in Australia. Overseas health professionals must fulfil special requirements in order to be allowed to practise in Australia.
Use of the APAC logo
Education providers may promote their accredited programs through use of the APAC Accredited Course logo.
The APAC Accredited Course logo is a certification denoting that an education provider’s psychology program of study has been accredited by APAC and meets the Accreditation Standards for Psychology Programs.
The APAC Accredited Course logo can only be used by education providers offering APAC-accredited programs that have received an accreditation status of Accreditation without Conditions or Accreditation with Conditions by APAC.
The education provider has responsibility to ensure correct use of the APAC Accredited Course logo and must comply with the Rules for Use which have been created to protect the value of the mark. Education providers cannot use the logo for psychology programs that have not received APAC accreditation.
Education providers wishing to use the APAC Accredited Course logo must first forward a completed Application Form to APAC for approval prior to using the logo. There is no cost attached to the application process or use of the logo once authorised by APAC.
