Recognition of Prior Learning

What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a Vocational Education and Training (VET)
assessment process for people who have already developed some or all of the required knowledge and skills needed to be issued a qualification. 

It is an assessment only process and unlike a training and assessment process where the assessment evidence is pre-set by the course designer in an RPL process there is a wider range of evidence that can be used to determine if you are competent or not.

It is critical that you have a clear understanding of the RPL Assessment process you are about to undertake. Be sure to review our RPL Information Kit before commencing and keep it handy for a reference as you gather your evidence for submission. It provides
comprehensive details on everything that you need to know about completing the RPL Assessment.

Step
1

Complete your Self-Assessment – You are the best expert on what you’ve done and what you know, so the first step in the RPL process is a self-assessment. This allows you to self-evaluate to decide if you are likely to be successful in applying for RPL.

2

Pre-enrollment discussion – You can email the self-assessment back to us or if you are unsure about anything in the document, email the program co-ordinator.

Once we have seen your self-assessment we’ll have a conversation about the type of evidence you may be able to provide. RPL is a structured process of assessment of competence and requires evidence.

Enrol in the course – After we decide together which units you have the experience and evidence to confirm that experience to be granted RPL we can calculate the course fee.

You’ll be given an enrolment form with the reduced fee amount and invoice. The amount will depend on whether you will need gap training or not and also if you have already been issued with any relevant units of competence.
