Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a form of assessment that acknowledges your formal and informal learning gained through:

  • Previous training and education
  • Past and current work experience
  • Life experience

The RPL process will involve validation of your existing skills and knowledge. Through this process you will be able to obtain credits in a course and, in some cases, a full qualification.
The assessment can take place by viewing existing academic records, proof of training course/workshop attendance, written support by previous employers and by viewing procedures and process undertaken in your workplace.

What are the advantages of RPL?

  • It can assist you in gaining entry into higher levels of study and training.
  • You can obtain/complete a formal qualification in a shorter period of time and at less cost.
  • It can increase your career and education options through recognised skills and knowledge.
  • You are recognised for your existing skills and knowledge, thus eliminating the need to repeat the learning that you have already undertaken.

Recognition of Prior Learning Fees

Fees associated with RPL are 50% of the course's fee.
