How is IDrive cloud backup different from most services?
Well, we don’t ignore you! You can keep a tab on your cloud backup activities via the ‘Log’ tab of the IDrive online backup application or web interface. Cloud Backup Monitoring – The 'Desktop Backup Report' summarizes the status of all scheduled backups for your IDrive online backup account. In the Command Log option, you get to see a list of all operations like Upload, Download, Rename, Delete etc., performed in your online backup account with the desktop application, the web interface or the IDrive APIs. Also, you get to see the summary and details of each activity.
Professional Accreditation – do you need it?
In most countries there are two forms of accreditation for engineering qualifications - national accreditation/recognition by the Government, and professional recognition by an Engineering society or association.
In Australia, national accreditation of higher education qualifications is undertaken by the Australian Government regulator; “TEQSA” (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency) – by Law, TEQSA are absolutely critical to any higher education being recognised.
The other form of accreditation is ‘professional accreditation’ though engineering societies such as; Engineers Australia or Professionals Australia. This professional recognition may help in obtaining employment, although an employer's requirement for this seems not at the levels it used to be - generally because the type of degree being studied, one's actual experience and past training are far more influential with potential employers.
Few engineering Master, and no PhD, degrees are accredited by Engineers Australia. Remember, if a qualification is not accredited by Engineers Australia, you can still apply for professional recognition by Engineers Australia on an individual, case-by-case are proud that we already have two Advanced Diplomas accredited by Engineers Australia, and are continuing to work with Engineers Australia to achieve accreditation on our Master and Bachelor degrees as soon as possible.
It should be noted that whilst confident, EIT cannot guarantee or commit to when (and if) we will receive accreditation from Engineers Australia for any of our other qualifications.
