RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING AND CREDIT TRANSFER

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.

Before applying for RPL, follow a short self-assessment to help determine if you’re eligable.

QUALIFICATION AND STATEMENT

A Statement of Attainment will be issued upon successful completion of the course.
