Recognition of Prior Learning & Credit Transfers

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment only process. RPL captures evidence from a student who has learnt a relevant unit in other courses, from life 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 deemed to have completed 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.

If you have any questions about the RPL process, your eligibility, or the evidence you would be required to produce you can read more about it here, or get in touch with us here.

Qualification & Statement

On successful completion of the Units of Competency a Statement of Attainment will be issued.
