Holders of university degrees and professional qualifications in disciplines related to Carbon Analysis and Auditing (e.g. Environmental Science, Environmental Economics, Bio Chemistry, Architecture, Engineering, and Management Accounting) are eligible directly to ‘Registered’ (RCAA) status. They should then undertake the 4 subjects in the ‘Associate’ Program at the Graduate diploma Level. It is envisaged that students who have obtained a degree with subjects covering the syllabuses of the 4 subject ‘Associate’ Program subject are eligible directly to ACAA status. The Institute hopes to accredit Graduate Certificate/ Graduate Diploma and Masters degree programs in Universities that cover all 12 Subjects of the program. Such degree holders will be allowed directly into CCAA membership status, provided experience criteria are met.

Flash! With the constant changes being proposed with regards climate change and carbon emissions management regulation in Australia; the education and training program to certify carbon analysts and auditors has been temporarily suspended. There will be no new intakes to these programs until further notice.
