Exciting times lie ahead for Australian Institute of Commerce and Technology after it was announced today that recent proceedings with the Australian Skills Quality Authority in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal have concluded.

This means AICT is free to continue as one of Australia’s leading international and domestic student educators offering hands on, practical training in IT, Business and English that leads to real employment.

On 10 February 2017 and pursuant to confidential Terms of Agreement between the parties, ASQA withdrew its earlier decision to cancel AICT’s registration, and as a result, AICT will continue as a registered training organisation (RTO).

The news was welcomed by AICT Chief Executive Officer Hong Fu who thanked AICT’s staff and students for their cooperation and understanding throughout this challenging period.

"I am pleased with the outcome and we can now move forward once again as one of Australia's premier training institutions," Mr Fu said.

"We have been delivering quality education and employment outcomes for more than 25 years and plan on building on our success in the future."

AICT is committed to being transparent and accountable in its operations and apologises unreservedly to all who were affected by certain errors made by staff who are no longer employed by AICT.

AICT has worked closely with ASQA to improve its policies and procedures to ensure such a situation will not arise again.

“I thank all of the students and agents who stood by us and believed in AICT during those difficult few months following the notification to cancel in August 2016,” Mr Fu said.
