Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that involves the collection of evidence against each unit in a qualification. An RPL assessment can be used to qualify for partial or full recognition in a qualification. RPL must be offered and completed prior to the commencement of the structured training.
Application may be made prior to or with enrolment and payment of fees and must be made using the RPL application form that will be provided during orientation. The Academic Manager can make a time to discuss your application in more detail.
Any course duration reduction as a result of RPL granted to students must be indicated on the Confirmation of Enrolment if granted prior to the issue of a visa or on PRISMS if granted after the issue of a visa.
Credit Transfer is a process where a student may be granted acknowledgement on the basis of prior studies gained through other Registered Training Organisations or Education providers for having completed the identical unit or units. For example, a student may have completed the same unit of competency at another institution undertaking another course; this will be recognised if the unit is the same both in terms of title and unit code number.
Student’s course schedule must be reviewed, if Credit Transfer is granted and any reductions in the scheduled attendance must be indicated on the Confirmation of Enrolment if granted prior to the issue of a visa or on PRISMS if granted after the issue of a visa.
