What is Recognition of Prior Learning?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that provides Students with an opportunity to receive credit for the formal and non-formal learning that has been undertaken since leaving school. The RPL process considers all relevant qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience that have been acquired throughout your working life. The RPL Assessment process enables the Assessor to collect a range of evidence to assist Students with either completing a full qualification or a partial qualification depending on their skills, knowledge and experience. If you have been granted a partial qualification throughout the RPL process, then you will be able to complete your qualification by undertaking the necessary gap training identified by our Assessor with our College.
