Professional ethics pay off

Professional ethics are an important part of building trust between colleagues, customers and suppliers. And this plays a big role in an organisation's culture, brand value and reputation. Acting ethically involves behaving honestly and with integrity, which pays off as individuals and organisations gain respect, work and repeat business.

Why earn a credential in professional ethics?

With recognised professional ethics standards, organisations will know they can trust you. The Professional Ethics Credential will:

  • Formalise the professional ethics you have built during your career
  • Prove your professional ethics to employers
  • Help future proof your career by verifying your ethics
  • Help you become a better practitioner as you reflect on your level
Depending on which level you achieve the credential in, it could lead to credit towards a post-graduate qualification at Deakin.
