National Accreditation Committee

The National Accreditation Committee (NAC) is a subcommittee of the National Certification Council (NCC) and is responsible for the Australian HR Capability Framework (AHRCF) and course accreditation.

The NAC oversees the AHRCF which is the HR certification standard and ensures it is contemporary and in line with HR best practice.

The NAC ensures the AHRCF standards are included in University and Vocational Education programs by reviewing applications for course accreditation from tertiary and vocational education providers and provides commentary on the Australian education environment.

The NAC is responsible for assessing curriculum content, maintenance and delivery of HR courses to ensure they meet the HR certification standard as outlined in the AHRCF.
