• Australian Center of Further Education

University Overview

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 has been successfully delivering the program throughout the past decade. As a result, our graduates are now serving the Australian health sector as Registered Nurses. The program is accredited by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) and the Australian Health and Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

The purpose of this program is to provide overseas trained nurses with skills and knowledge required by AHPRA, to meet the Australian Nursing and Midwifery competency standards, to practise as Registered Nurses(RN) or Enrolled Nurses (EN) in an Australian Health Care setting. To date, ACFE has produced thousands of graduates, as well as many who have gone on to complete our other Courses. ACFE also boasts a high rate of employability of its graduates. It has become one of the most reliable and respectable education providers of the IRON Program in Australia. ACFE is also an accredited Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and CRICOS provider.

We are registered with, and regulated by, the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). ACFE will continue to serve both the International and Domestic markets in various areas of Health and Community Services.
