Recognition of Prior Learning

If you can demonstrate that you have the skills and knowledge equivalent to part of, or a full qualification you can get Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) with us. Getting RPL involves producing supporting documents and doing an assessment process with our friendly staff.

The process of RPL requires you to compile and submit a portfolio of evidence which is then assessed by a qualified assessor. Assessment typically takes two weeks. Successful applicants will be issued with the same qualification as those who study the course. Any units of competency that you cannot supply evidence for can be studied individually prices are available on application.
