Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

RPL involves a formal recognition of the skills and knowledge you have already achieved through previous studies, work and life experiences.

To obtain Recognition of Prior Learning you must satisfy the requirements for the entire unit, not just some parts of it.

If you believe you qualify, we will formally assess your existing skills and knowledge and determine if they can count towards your qualification and shorten the period of training. This will take into account;

  • work-related training courses
  • on-the-job skills and work experience
  • volunteer and community work
  • a combination of all of the above

Fees for RPL are determined based on units and nominal hours.
