RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING AND CREDIT TRANSFERS

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment only process. RPL captures evidence from a student who has already learnt in other courses, from life and/or work experience and from any training at work. This 'Prior Learning' must be relevant to one or more of the units of competency they are enrolling in. A student who is assessed through RPL as competent in a unit is not required to do that unit in the course.

If you believe you have completed a unit of competency in another formal learning experience, you may be eligible for a Credit Transfer (CT). You will have to provide a certified copy of the Statement of Results or Statement of Attainment through the enrolment process as evidence. If a CT is identified, you will not have to complete the unit again, or be charged for that unit.
