APPLIED SCIENCE DIPLOMA LEVEL COURSE
Today's world is driven by scientific advancements; and this trend is only becoming more and more significant as the years go by.
Taking advantage of scientific knowledge requires more than just being a proficient scientist though.
Many graduates (if not most), from university science degrees, have a great deal of difficulty getting jobs they want or finding ways to take proper advantage of the knowledge they learnt in their university studies.
In reality, "learning about science" is only one piece of a big puzzle. This course is a little different to some, in that we try to give you more of the "puzzle pieces" than the "mainstream" courses; and in doing so, increase your opportunities for career success.
Clients... that have completed courses with ACS that we have spoken to, have all been extremely happy. Leanne & myself are more than happy with the assistance we received and the prompt attention."

What you learn through ACS Applied Science Studies
An ACS Certificate or Diploma in Applied Science is designed to provide foundation knowledge beyond secondary education, but with a greater relevance to the practical workplace than academic type university studies. Our qualifications can also be used to bridge the gap between a specific qualification and the needs of a certain position. For example, whilst an irrigation equipment salesperson might be qualified in sales, they might choose to study a Certificate in Applied Science with a major in horticulture to give them that “foundation knowledge” that will allow them to answer those difficult questions from clients. A qualified nurse might take a Certificate in Applied Science with a major in nutrition to increase their ability to advise patients on dietary changes as part of an overall treatment program.
Getting a job in today’s world is determined not only by the sort of qualification you have, but also your personality, presentation, attitude, experience, interests, and ability to adapt to new challenges.
With an ACS qualification in Applied Science, you are better prepared to enter a science oriented” workplace, learn faster on the job, and become a more useful employee within a shorter period of time.
There are in fact fewer jobs today (per capita) that require a degree than there were in the past. Despite this, today more than in the past, employers do tend to seek certain specific knowledge and skills in employees.
What do Employers Think?
A qualification that has required hard work to attain will be an indication to an employer that you have a certain level of drive and commitment.
An understanding of the industry and discipline which the job encompasses will indicate that you are more likely to learn faster and become useful to the employer sooner. We design our courses with these things in mind.
Where Might a Certificate or Diploma Lead?
Diplomas generally offer the possibility of a position of greater responsibility (although some diploma graduates might never move beyond an assistant position). People with Diplomas might become Technical Officers, Technical Advisors, Freelance Consultants (in some fields), and Technical Sales Managers.
- Certificates are generally going to lead you to being an “assistant” of some kind. Whilst it varies, assistants in the field of science might become employed as laboratory assistants and technical assistants.
