The Australian Centre of Further Education (ACFE) embraces the value of providing opportunities to individuals from diverse backgrounds to be able to practice their chosen profession. The Organisation recognises that education is a continuous and lifelong process. Through education, individuals are able to build-on and modify previously acquired knowledge, skills and attitude.
The goal is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to maximise their full potential.
The Australian Centre of Further Education was established in January 2009. ACFE started as an IRON (Initial Registration of Overseas Nurses) Program education provider and is successfully delivering the program for five years. As a result, our graduates are now serving the Australian health sector asRegistered Nurses. The program is approved by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Australia (ANMAC) and the Australian Health and Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
