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.

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