Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is an “assessment” only pathway utilising the skills, knowledge and experience you’ve gained through study, training, work and life experience to gain a formal qualification. You should discuss this option with a trainer prior to enrolling in a course to determine if you can meet the requirements. If you are unable to meet all of the requirements during the RPL gap training may be provided.

How will I be assessed?

There are a number of ways you can complete RPL such as:

  • A discussion/interview with your assessor
  • Workplace observations or scenarios
  • A portfolio of evidence which may include
  • A resume or duty statement
  • 3rd party reports
  • A product or resource you have developed
  • Previous units of competence or qualifications you have completed

An assessor will look at all of the evidence and match it against a unit of competence or qualification.

Recognition of Prior Learning and Recognition of Current Competencies are charged at a fee of $1,000 (inc GST) per day.

Credit transfer

Credit transfer recognises another unit or qualification you have completed through previous study. This can be used as part of your overall RPL. A credit transfer is accepted from other organisations such as TAFE, university or a private training organisation.
