Recognition of prior learning

If you are an experienced workplace trainer-assessor, we strongly recommend the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pathway, given its numerous advantages, such as cost and time savings, and its participant-centric nature.

Key Questions and Answers about RPL:

  • How does RPL work?

    To undergo RPL, you need to provide sufficient and valid evidence against the performance criteria, knowledge, and performance requirements for each of the twelve (12) competency units. Alternatively, you can choose specific units for RPL and enrol in others, utilising the training and assessment pathway to showcase your competence.

  • What is evidence?

    Evidence encompasses anything demonstrating your competency. It may originate from life experiences, work history, training within the workplace, as well as accredited and non-accredited courses. Your evidence must adhere to the Four (4) Rules of Evidence: it must be valid, sufficient, current, and authentic.

  • What is a portfolio of evidence?

    A portfolio of evidence is a compilation of documents verifying your competence. Examples include records from current and past workplaces, endorsements from managers or supervisors who observed your workplace performance, your most recent resume, and your current and previous job descriptions. Your portfolio typically comprises a diverse range of evidence types.
