Have your skills recognised
Those students who already possess industry experience and have the required skills and knowledge can be assessed through the RPL process. Candidates must validate their ability to meet all industry benchmarks as required for each relevant unit.
What is RPL?
The RPL process is a methodical and detailed collection of evidence that describes your current knowledge and skill levels. This process can take up to a few months depending on what type of evidences you have available and how quickly you can get them together.
Reasons for applying for RPL could include:
- Gaining an accredited qualification or statement of attainment
- Obtaining entry or credit into a course
- Confirming competence for appointment to workplace position, licensing or regulatory authority
- Receiving recognition for your current skills and knowledge
- Recognising an employee’s skills and knowledge to retrain into different roles
- Completing and attaining your qualification in a shorter period of time
Industry level competency
Your skills and knowledge may have been gained through work experience, formal and informal training and general life experience. If you wish to have your current skills recognised, you must demonstrate that you are competent in comparison to industry performance standards.
