Benefits of RPL Certification in Community Services

Get nationally recognised certification

Certifications, accreditations and other formal qualifications go a long way towards helping you succeed in your career in community services. Organisations often look for formal certifications that prove you meet relevant industry standards and licensing requirements.

Save time and money on training programs

Training programs are a great way to gain or improve the skills you need for a certain position. For example, you cannot be a counsellor without a degree in social sciences and counselling. But it’s not impossible to obtain them.

If you’ve had relevant experiences before, they can be converted into a formal community services certification with an RPL assessment.

Improve your career prospects

Employers are more likely to choose someone with the right qualifications over an applicant who only says they have an experience doing community service. With RPL, you can work towards certifications relevant to the position you’re applying for based on your past experiences.

This formal certification cements your qualification for the role, especially since RPL is a government-mandated process.
